[Audio x Video] Master Mimz – “Back Down Mubarak!”
One of the most politically informed and passionate professors I worked with in Grad school sent me this video this morning, which speaks at the current state of upheaval in Egypt. I think it's safe to say the emcee, Master Mimz, chose Ludacris's "Numba One Spot" as the underlying beat for non-musical reasons: Like the protestors and country people of Egypt her desire is crystal clear, Hosni Mubarak should back down.
From what I can tell on her facebook fan page, Master Mimz is a young political artist who studies at the UK at the London School of Political Science but calls Casablanca Morocco her home. "This is a human issue, not politics!" she recently said on her twitter. Maybe that's why I feel this when I watch and listen.
