Baba Brinkman’s critically-acclaimed new hip-hop album, The Rap Guide to Wilderness, explores the science of nature-loving in a collection of upbeat anthems designed to inspire a passion for wild nature and a new appreciation for the living world. A former forest worker turned award-winning rap theatre artist, Baba personally planted more than one million trees in the Canadian wilderness before turning his craft to socially-conscious hip-hop.
With humans dominating the planet, biodiversity under threat, and more and more people flocking to the glass and concrete towers of urban living, Baba Brinkman’s new album makes a powerful case for the ongoing protection and preservation of the wilderness around us. This album was recorded with support from The WILD Foundation and 50% of net proceeds from album sales are donated to their conservation efforts.
