I fuckin miss Zach de la Rocha and RATM. But revolutionary hip hop artists keep sprouting up, and rejecting the corporate music maquiladora in favor of subterranean networks of distribution. And that makes me happy. Like Jarred Paul, who rocks “Six is Nine” from what looks like a living room show, pushing us to smash the banks while rejecting liberal who “talk shit then run and hide” Dopeness.
From the YouTube Page:
“Six Is Nine,” is the second single from Jared Paul’s upcoming Occupational Hazards mixtape project. “Six Is Nine” remixes Jimi Hendrix’s legendary counter-culture anthem, “If 6 Was 9,” adding fiery new lyrics that speak directly to the rising tide of worker’s rights, human rights, environmental justice, anti-war, and anti-capitalist movements sweeping the post Occupy, post Arab Spring world. Remix and additional production by Sacramento based producer, Tommy Fox. Jared will be releasing new tracks from Occupational Hazards throughout the year via Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and www.JaredPaul.org
