JLove & M1 Productions
Long time friends and collaborators, JLove and Mutulu Olugbala aka M1 came together under shared values and vision to create compelling, provocative and innovative platform agnostic content that shifts culture, lifestyle, politics, and power.
Mutulu Olugbala, is a global force connector using the mic, music production, film, and workshops to reshape the reality of the masses and redefine revolutionary culture. One half of evolutionary and trendsetting dead prez, their album LET'S GET FREE shook the hip-hop world 15 years ago and still continues to inspire communities to master political education through rhyme. In 2012, he formed Sound Weapon Global Media and teamed up with Italian musician, producer, and DJ Walter Buonnano to venture into digital and electronic music. Their collaboration led to AP2P (All Power to the People) and an album of the same name.
