The Weathermen, is an underground hip-hop supergroup consisting of Aesop Rock, Tame One, Breeze Brewin, El-P, Cage, Camu Tao, Vast Aire and Yak Ballz. The group took its name from the revolutionary organization Weatherman, and sometimes refers to itself as the "New Left".
Yeah, The Weathermen. It's ridiculoid how dope they are.
The Weathermen were an underground society of radical left protesters, many of whom were college students, who often resorted to violent tactics in the 60's in effort to promote the "New Left" and extraction of troops from Vietnam.
"We felt that doing nothing in a period of repressive violence is itself a form of violence. That's really the part that I think is the hardest for people to understand. If you sit in your house, live your white life and go to your white job, and allow the country that you live in to murder people and to commit genocide, and you sit there and you don't do anything about it, that's violence."(concerning the weathermen) -Naomi Jaffe (former Weather(wo)man)
