Chuck D has been at the forefront of politics in music ever since Public Enemy first hit the stage way back in the day. In the 90s, he recorded a song called “By the Time I Get to Arizona,” speaking out against Arizona’s lack of support for localizing the honoring of Martin Luther King’s birthday. Now it’s 2010 and the song has gained new relevance with Arizona’s anti-immigration law getting a lot of attention the past couple weeks.
To address the situation, Chuck’s fellow hip-hop cohort DJ Spooky put together remix the song to stir up more awareness of the issue. You can download that track for free here.
Enjoy some good music and make sure to do everything in your power to promote freedom and equality in America. Rock on, party people.
