The Mountain Brothers, DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies and others contributed songs to Elephant Tracks, a hip-hop benefit album released Tuesday (March 21) by indie label Asian Improv Records. Proceeds will help fund the Asian Pacific Islander Students Association Motivational Conference, a youth seminar held in San Francisco on May 12–13, according to Christine Padilla, who oversaw the album's production. New York DJ Mr. Sinista and Roli Rho and Kuttin Kandi of the 5th Platoon also contributed tracks. Padilla said Asian-American rappers submitted two-thirds of the songs on Elephant Tracks.
