As mentioned prior, Chuck-D is no stranger to Digital Distribution, Mash-ups and getting political. On Public Enemy’s 1991 album “Apocalypse 91 – The Enemy Strikes Back” was a song titled: “By the time I get to Arizona”, it was comment on Senator John McCain’s opposition to recognizing Martin Luther King Day as a public holiday in the State of Arizona.
Recently Arizona’s come under fire for its border control, and the unprovoked beatings that citizens receive. I havnt followed the story closely, but in response DJ Spooky (who has worked with Chuck on projcets before) remixed the 19 year old (OMG Im old) PE classic and made it available for free (and totally LEGAL) download.
As all are well aware; the ABC radio station, tripple J, offer free mp3′s at their website. This week Sage Francis has a song avalible to download. Free music doesnt have to be illegal of unheard of. If you dig experimental hiphop I reccomend you give it a download.
