Rod Meade Sperry interviews rapper and musician Born I Music (aka Born Infinite) about how Buddhist meditation has influenced his music.
Washington DC-based rapper and musician Born I Music (aka Born Infinite) is notable not just for his talent but for the way he smartly mixed rap and spirituality during his tenure in the rap duo known as Shambhala.
Now Born has gone solo with an album called Tomorrow Is Today, and is trying new things musically — but his study and practice of Buddhist meditation still informs his work, both in his songs and in his life outside the studio and stage.
Born talked to me about it all in this Lion’s Roar Audio clip (which was recorded back when Lion’s Roar was known as Shambhala Sun).
