Occupy Wall Street:  Jasiri X – “Occupy (We the 99)”  [Video]

Getting back to its roots and helping spark change to society, Hip-Hop has made a heavy presence over the last month with Occupy Wall Street taking place across the country and abroad.

Filmed live at Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Pittsburgh by Director Paradise Gray, Jasiri X reconnects with super producer Cynik Lethal to provide a soundtrack for this growing movement that has taken the world by storm. We gonna Occupy!

After the Jump, you can peep the lyrics to the revolution… [More]

Verse 1

The Power’s with the people don’t let these cowards deceive you

and be the next mouse in the talons of a eagle

this country’s wealth gap isn’t unbalanced it’s evil

we celebrate access while the people have less

in poverty abject madness

while the economy collapses add stress

that’s the last straw

you want class war well give you what you ask for

the have nots at the have’s door

we came to crash your party

and we aint leaving until we’re even

the Constitution guarantees these freedoms

any one against that’s committing treason

your not a real patriot unless you stand for what you believe in

and nobody got more welfare than Wall Street

hundreds of billions after operating falsely

and nobody went to prison that’s where you lost me

but my home, my job, and my life is what it cost me

Verse 2

Remember when police beat the Egyptians who were defiant

even president Obama condemned the violence

but when NYPD beat Americans there’s silence

it’s apparent that there’s bias

sticks for the people but give carrots to the liars

those crooked cops just for embarrassment should be fired

and if you want to see terrorists then look higher

they in them skyscrapers with billions from my labor

forcing people out of there homes with falsified data

so we either unify now or cry later

1% got the wealth but the 99’s greater

so in every city we gone occupy major

cause nobody got more welfare than Wall Street

hundreds of billions after operating falsely

and nobody went to prison that’s where you lost me

but my home, my job, and my life is what it cost me
