Live Performance and Video Remixed at Rebuild Wisconsin Festival in Milwaukee last Saturday

 

MILWAUKEE, WI – Jasiri X, renowned emcee and community activist, released a remix of his new video, “You’re Fired.” The video is a direct response to the election to recall Governer Scott Walker in Wisconsin and can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY3NW95NXLI.

Already known for the controversial viral video “What if the Tea Party was Black?” and the hard-hitting “A Song for Trayvon,” Jasiri X cleverly uses Hip-Hop to provide social commentary on a variety of issues. Jasiri X said of the powerful remix, “What I saw in Milwaukee was a organized and energized community that’s had enough with being disrespected and is committed to recalling Scott Walker on June 5th.”

Jasiri X performed “You’re Fired” live at Rebuild Wisconsin on May 19th in Milwaukee, where he shot the live remix video with event participants. A cultural, political, grassroots, community-based festival, Rebuild Wisconsin brought together people in a one-of-its-kind powerful combination of arts and politics. Rebuild the Dream used the event to perform get-out-the-vote activities for the upcoming recall election and nonviolent direct action trainings.

In addition to Jasiri X’s performance, attendees saw Grace Weber, Prophetic, Doc B, DJ Willie Shakes, Comedian Lee Camp, along with talented local artists, musicians, and poets, and heard speeches from Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Rebuild the Dream co-founder and President Van Jones, and other community leaders.
