Download: Toki Wright – “By The Time I Get To Arizona Redeux”

Toki Wright has breathed new life into Public Enemy’s timeless anthem “By The Time I Get To Arizona.” This new version was created in response to a bill signed into law in the state of Arizona that states “all immigrants must carry documentation verifying their immigration status.” Police officers now have the authority to ask to see the information from any individual that is deemed “suspicious.” Essentially, a bill that legalizes racial profiling: if you look like an immigrant, you can be hauled off to jail. Toki’s scathing indictment pays due respect to the original classic, once again turning hip-hop into the true “CNN of the people.” Download the song for free, share it with friends, and check this link to learn about 5 Actions You Can Take Immediately Against SB 1070strangefamousrecords.com
