[MUSIC] Jasiri X - '212°'

From the artist himself:

“I never really wanted the role of Hip-Hop artist that
speaks when something tragic happens in our community,
but I guess it is what it is. I got so many calls, tweets, and
texts from folks asking me to say something so here it is.
It’s raw and angry because that’s how I feel about more
Black death unjustly at the hands of the police. For Michael
Brown, Eric Garner, John Crawford, and Ezell Ford, I hope
your lives are not in vain, and God brings your families peace.
For my community, this won’t stop until we stop it, and the
first step is unity. I called this song 212 degrees because
that’s the boiling point. The lid is about to blow off this
whole masquerade.”
