The [a=Black Rhyme Organisation To Help Equal Rights] (B.R.O.T.H.E.R. ) was a collection of some of the most talented UK Hip Hop artists around in 1989. Instigated by the political ragga-rap group [a=Gatecrash (2)], the main purpose of their debut single release, "Beyond the 16th Parallel," was to raise awareness of the racial inequalities of the South African apartheid regime.
Assembling an all-star line up, including the late Bernie Grant MP, each of the separate groups had the task of tackling the specifics of the Botha government. With this as a new main focus, the B.R.O.T.H.E.R. project managed to temporarily stem the inter-group friction that existed across much of London's Hip Hop community. All artists royalties were donated to the African National Congress (ANC).
This led to a second B.R.O.T.H.E.R. project entitled "Ghettogeddon", a three track release focused entirely on the rising inner city gun culture of the nineties. The release was preceded by a BBC documentary entitled "The violence must cease". All associated artists' royalties were donated to SCAR (Sickle Cell Anaemia Research).
In addition to the list below, also members of the movement:
Freshki, Junior San and Trouble & Bass.
