Aja and Samir of the Reminders
Things are getting pretty busy in the ReMINDers camp this summer, as Colorado Springs' favorite hip-hop couple prepares for a national tour with Rhymesayers artist Brother Ali, and puts the finishing touches on a way-too-long-awaited sophomore album.

In order to press enough CDs to last throughout the whole tour, Aja and Samir have launched a funding campaign at indiegogo.com/theremindersbornchampions. There are numerous contribution levels, with premiums ranging from an autographed advance copy of the album to a scarf in the color of your choice knitted by Aja herself.

As of this writing, the ReMINDers have raised $2,760, with five days left to go. The couple even got a message of support from A Tribe Called Quest legend Ali Shaheed Muhammad:

Nice. For further motivation and inspiration, here's a couple of videos we like:
