Mama Sol & Tha N.U.T.S. (New Under The Sun) on BackStage Pass!

Hip-hop artist and Flint native Mama Sol performs Hard to Swallow, Thankful and much more!  WATCH NOW

Mama Sol & Tha N.U.T.S. (New Under The Sun) is a Michigan-based hip-hop/neo soul band committed to breaking the self-destructive cycle of mainstream hip-hop. Their vision is for a world prioritizing education, responsibility, and art. That vision drives each syllable, synonym, rhythm and rhyme they create.

Mama Sol, a native of Flint Michigan, performs songs, Hard to Swallow, Thankful and much more!  Mama Sol & Tha N.U.T.S, also brings awareness to the Flint water crisis and gives a positive and powerful message through the music.

The episode was recorded in front of a capacity audience at WKAR Studio A on the campus of Michigan State University in March 2017.
