Single: Toki Wright - By The Time I Get To Arizona 2010

The new Arizona Immigration law is heinous...

No way around it, the thing simply is just a regression back to a time in America when blatant racism was socially instituted/acceptable and people of Latin descent were badly mis-treated in the southwest...It's shameful that all of this madness comes in a month when champion and pioneer of civil rights Dorothy Height passed away...

So far I haven't heard too many MC's chime in about the new law, but today one very good one did step up. Toki Wright; the thoughtful twin cities/Rhymesayers MC that I've praised on here before very heavily for his conscious and thoughtful music took the old Public Enemy classic and re-worked it to perfection.

Channeling his inner Chuck D, Toki gives us the best and most important single we'll hear all week, taking to task this whole part of the country and it's obviously biased ways/beliefs...Listen up and when you get the chance speak out against this law...

and BTW, the PE legend himself made sure to give hs commentary on this awhile back as well...peep the article here
