First One Shot | State Radio | Peace Between Nations [EP]

"So tip your hat to the gentleman
Or at least nod your head
For only he, knows what stands in front of
What is medicinal at best

'Cause the first one to be shot
Is the last to know
And the garden that grows apart
Is it’s only soul

Don’t ask me to follow suit
It’s just too late now
Our god isn’t what you preach”

August 27, 2008, Rage Against the Machine members, along side James “Jonny 5” Laurie from the Flobots (left) participated in an anti-war march outside the Democratic National Convention in Denver, CO.

Other rockers attended such as State Radio, The Coup, Jello Biafra and Wayne Kramer from the MC5, who joined Rage onstage at their free concert just before the march.

Estelle - American Boy

"Take me on a trip I’d like to go some day
Take me to New York, I’d love to see LA
I really want to come kick it with you
You’ll be my American Boy”

We Don’t Care Anymore | KRS-One feat. DMX | Digital (2003)

"I’ll keep on bringin’ and singin’ until your ears is ringin’
And stingin’ flingin’ and gleamin’ true MC’n with meanin’
It’s seemin’ we fiendin’ for all the cream and all the screamin’
The demon got us believin’ in schemin’, rhymin’ for no reason
Every weekend we weakened, discipline is what we needin’
But we too busy freakin’ to understand divine speakin’
Is anyone out there tryin’ to make it better?
Or is all of hip-hop about the cheddar? Whatever!”

~KRS-One, verse 1


Quasimoto - Low Class Conspiracy 


She passed me the indigo, but the imbecile
Should have never tippy-toed, thought my eyes were closed
Opening the hotel room door to let her goons in

Cause baby girl got all the right weaponry.”
