Zack de la Rouda: environmental/conscious hip-hop

Zack de la Rouda, a "Poet, singer, songwriter, rhapsodist, activist, rewilder, homesteader-in-training", has released several albums plus miscellaneous tracks, full of rewilding and anti-civ sentiments with hip-hop beats. Explore his music, most downloadable for free, at Zack de la Rouda at Bandcamp.

To get you started, here's "(Live Like) We're Dying", with a chorus advising:

we gotta start looking at the hands on the time we been given
if this is all we got then we gotta start thinking that
every second counts on a clock that's ticking
we need to live like we're dying
we only got 86,400 seconds in the day
to turn it all around or to throw it all away
gotta tell 'em that we love 'em while we got the chance to say
we need to live like we're dying
