We are a books, media and lifestyle company marketing to the African diaspora. Partnering with The Afromerican Project and Circadian Riddims Productions expanded our capacity to assist those in need of attention from the public eye. Our efforts don’t only support artists, we have also seen our come-unity approach benefit schools and youth organizations in need of education, arts and media/publishing services.

Dirges of Becoming is kwe's first collection of poetry published by Afro Roots Hop press in 2010. The scholar turned poet/musician published his first poem 'The Wind' in Contrary Magazine in 2003, while in graduate school in Chicago, Illinois.
Dawn (the soundtrack to the book) - was released in 2011 in a triune collaboration with Derek Wood (Guitarist) and Felix Fantasia (Bassist) of Circadian Riddims Productions and Arkitek (Gilead Balm records). The music was produced and recorded
by kwe between the "Fire Boss" studio (Brockton, MA) and the "TreeHouse" studio (Weed, CA). Seven years later, kwe and Derek link up again with the singers and players of the Music Is Healing ensemble (Keith Waters on Saxophone, Talia Pique on Keys/Vocals) to release the full album version,
including a live performance recorded on the air on April 27th, 2018 at WMBR (88.1fm Cambridge), and audio from the 2008 Aspen Writers' Festival performance series at the Belly Up with Habib Koite.
Dawn was mixed in Cambridge, MA inside the production studios at WMBR, where kwe is host of the Music Is Healing show which made its debut on the air in the summer of 2018. Dawn is the first in a series of upcoming Live In Studio releases from the Afro Roots Hop artists registry!
Dawn is distributed digitally worldwide by Afro Roots Hop records. Physical prints of the book and copies of the CD will soon be available and at a discount for bulk orders (stores, schools, universities, affiliate community partners, writing workshops).
As a movement launched to build Unity through Music across the African diaspora, AfroRootsHop is committed to promote education and a healthy lifestyle through information and media publishing services.
