Mixtape Therapy for inmates

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

I like rap music. I don't like unnecessarily crass language. I believe that a well placed F bomb is fine, but when you rely on curse words to tell your entire story, the curse words (and your story) lose their power.


This album was created by inmates, and because it was played on the institution radio, it has no cursing.

Being forced to find different words to express thoughts has resulted in some truly good songs.


"The same prison as my grandfather" about generational incarceration is particularly poignant to me, but there are others.

The album is on Spotify. Give this article from Rolling Stone a read, and give the album a try. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/david-jassy-san-quentin-mixtape-1005542/?fbclid=IwAR0umfgV2ULzkco9kkG49C2JmE-XZ6IangClhRTsg5yykG2nZpov0ZhhBqQ
