Gem Drops Loves Local Music, Hates Cancer

Know what sucks? The music of Kenny Chesney. But know what is worse than Kenny Chesney? Cancer (barely).

That being the case, Portland collective Dropping Gems have teamed up with a parade of local talent to release a 21-track compilation entitled Gem Drops. Primarily composed of Portland electronic and hiphop artists (with the likes of yuk., Devonwho, and Brownbear taking part), Gem Drops will be donating 100% of its revenue to the kind souls at the American Cancer Society. As of yesterday the compilation is now available for a "pay what you can" donation right here, or if you want to pony-up $15 or more, they'll get you a handmade version of the CD.

Either way you win and cancer loses.
