It took us a month of constant and obsessive work to bring this thing together. My pal Scoop and I wrote the lyrics in a two day frenzy. We filmed for weeks and drove around the most hardcore neighborhoods of Detroit, the city we love and explore. We performed it numerous times at house parties and continue to showcase and spread the word. Why? Take a look around the appalling actions of governments and individuals who use their powers to undermine, exploit, endanger, and rob people and communities for their own greedy and selfish desires. This song is meant not to disrespect our city, but perhaps to inspire and put forth the idea that citizens can take their communities back.
