Scott Walker, You're Fired!

I was in Madison, Wisconsin when the citizens took over the statehouse and it was one of the most amazing events I've witnessed. I saw firsthand the power of regular people coming together in unity to fight back against corrupt politicians and corporate influence. I'm honored to add my voice to this historic campaign to recall Scott Walker and rebuild Wisconsin.

LYRICS
Yeah, it's time for a Recall
Untied we stand divided we fall
We tired of being treated like we small
You forgot you work for us and we the boss

So let's tell Scott Walker you're fired
Go clean out ya desk cause you're fired
Cash that last check cause you're fired
You don't wanna show us respect now you're fired

The powers with the people don't let these coward device you
Like since it's time to vote now they need you
We are not who these politicians speak to
When it's $10,000 a plate just to meet you
Ask Mr Walker about all his offers
Barely half a term look how much it cost ya
Month after month of consecutive job losses
While he with the Koch brothers in aspen straight flossin
He's with the NRA they got they guns cocked
He passed stand your ground just took him one shot
And that lead to the death of Bo Morrison
Such a bright future now they're more morning him
This election they don't even want you voting in
Tried to make you have an ID before going in
But now accountable is what we're holding them
Open up the polls we got the whole hood rolling in

Yeah, it's time for a Recall
Untied we stand divided we fall
We tired of being treated like we small
You forgot you work for us and we the boss

So let's tell Scott Walker you're fired
Go clean out ya desk cause you're fired
Cash that last check cause you're fired
You don't wanna show us respect now you're fired

Is this who you really want as ya governor
The second he gets elected wanna stunt on ya
Got you're vote now he got no love for ya
Every day he got a new way of hand cuffing ya
Like education nah we don't need that
We don't wanna to pay anybody to teach that
Ease back see they really believe that
Smart people vote so they don't want you to be that
Or make a good living that pays
Scott Walker rather see you making minimum wage
With no unions, no benefits and no future
So his corporate friends can stay rich it's so super
Unless you're working class or poor
they always slam the door on what we asking for
It's all we can stand and we can't stand no more
Of these hardcore liars Scott Walker you're fired

It looks like Jasiri and Lee Camp will meet up in Wisconsin! From the press release:

Jasiri X, renowned emcee and community activist, released a new video
today, "You're Fired." The video is a direct response to the election
to recall Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin.

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. He said of the video, "I was in Madison, Wisconsin when the
citizens took over the statehouse and it was one of the most amazing
events I've witnessed. I saw firsthand the power of regular people
coming together in unity to fight back against corrupt politicians and
corporate influence. I'm honored to add my voice to this historic
campaign to recall Scott Walker and rebuild Wisconsin."

Jasiri X will be performing "You're Fired" live at Rebuild Wisconsin
on May 19th in Milwaukee, where he will also be shooting a live remix
video with event participants. A cultural, political, grassroots,
community-based festival, Rebuild Wisconsin will bring together
thousands and inspire millions. Along with Jasiri X there will be
performances by Grace Weber, Prophetic, Doc B, DJ Willie Shakes,
Comedian Lee Camp, as well as talented local artists, musicians,
poets, and community leaders. President and Co-Founder of Rebuild the
Dream, Van Jones, and Congresswoman Gwen Moore will also take the
stage, and Rebuild the Dream will lead GOTV and nonviolent direct
action trainings.
