Jesse Abraham, winner of the Underground Music Award for Lyricist of the Year in 2011, has announced a new full-length, I Am Water, due out November 13, 2012. Three singles off the album have been released thus far, all premiering on HipHopDX. The latest “I Ain’t Shit – I’m The Shit” (Produced by !llMind) released in August 2012 received more downloads within a week than any single Abraham has put out to date.
Jesse Abraham’s previous album, One Day (self-released in June 2011 via DJBooth.net) has acquired over 4,000 downloads to date and was nominated for Indie Album of the Year at the 2011 Underground Music Awards. Since then Abraham has released a live album (Live at Southpaw) and was recently named HipHopDX’s DXNext Artist.
Abraham’s previous mixtapes and albums have been available for free download. He chose to make I Am Water a sellable entity with100% of the proceeds to a worthy cause, Charity Water.
Charity Water’s impact is unquestionable. 100% of public donations directly fund water projects in developing countries, and all it takes is about $20 to get clean water to an individual who previously did not have access to it. When I Am Water is released, every two CD’s Abraham sells, or 4 digital downloads, brings a lifetime of safe water to someone in need.
