Beautiful new Midwest/workers love from Pittsburgh-based emcee and activist Jasiri X. Today let’s honor all workers’ struggles by continuing our commitment to them in the present, and connecting them to the events and movements our government and media lift up, while concealing their true implications for the liberation of our communities.
“We Coming” was inspired by the Dream Defenders, BYP100, and the movement of fast food and low wage workers to get $15 an hour and the right to form a union. “We Coming” was shot on location in Milwaukee, WI during the 8/29 Strike that took place in over 50 cities around the country. “We Coming” was produced by GM3, shot by Paradise Gray, and based off a chant by Artist and Activist Jazz Hudson. Young people are rising up all over the country and the world, believe me when I say, “WE COMING”!
