Progressive rapper Jasiri X's new video, "You're Fired," is a direct response to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's attacks on the working families of Wisconsin. Jasiri X regularly writes songs and appears in videos with strong political content and current and important issues. About this song and video he says:

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.

The video was directed by Paradise Gray. Silas Russell appears in the video as Scott Walker. The full lyrics:

Yeah, it's time for a Recall
United 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
