Recently Tijana bASS and Chuck D took over MTV Adria in the Balkans as a major part of the Face Of Freedom campaign, the song and video that intends to repurpose hip hops meaning of daring to change the world.
The starting point of the project is the upcoming single 'Face of Freedom' by the
rapper and singer Tijana Bass, who has been working for several years under the
guidance of SLAMJamz Records. Local media colleagues in the
Balkan region are encouraged to help raise
awareness for the growth and trouble of neo-fascism, infringement of
the basic human rights and neo-nazism. Facing these issues on
a daily basis, Face of Freedom challenges this hatred.
The music video will be promoted globally through all available
resources of the SLAMjamz Records company, MTV, all major music
programs around the world, radio stations, web sites and international

The promotion of the portal was a part of the Public Enemy
European tour in November 2010
A more detailed plan for the promotion will soon be available for distribution.
Born under the brave sign of Saggitarius, Tijana quite early began to show empathy
for injustice and discrimination. Raised by successful parents, her childhood
was paved with a strong will to live, lled with creativity and justice. But soon her
idyllic life has turned into a nightmare in a blink of an eye, for she was forced to
abandon her home with her family in 1991 and become a refugee. It is not surprising
that in her lyrics today, we can feel an explosion of thoughts, a childhood
that has not been lived to its fullest, brutality, anger, determination and freedom,
but also eroticism and sex.
Tijana Bass says that she lives like a Gypsy. Although she loves Slovenia and the city of Maribor, that
opened its doors for her family during the war in Croatia, Tijana will always feel cosmopolitan.
'Once you are uprooted, you become resistant to everything!' she says.
The music video for the project is being directed by David Burk and Robert
Hedzet; they have over 20 videos between them. Their work has been
viewed by over 2 million people in eighteen months on various sources on
the internet. Their eld of work includes the entire Balkans. Currently they
are working on four videos, two in Serbia and two in Croatia.
