Jim Jones Taps Conway & Marc Scibilia For “The People (Remix)”
RIP George Floyd! Jim Jones enlists Conway and Marc Scibilia for the official remix of “The People.”
Though we’ve witnessed the power of these protests, the fight is far from over. Nearly a month after releasing the track, Jones returned with a remix with Griselda’s Conway. With a quick 16, Conway uses his experiences to bring everything together. He kicks off detailing a traffic stop that leads to excessive force. “Young girl watchin’ it happen don’t know what she should do/ Besides record it on her phone, ain’t really much she can do,” he raps. The rapper parallels his own experience to his uncle’s who died in police custody in 1992 before explaining the necessity of protesting in these times.
Fuck the teargas and the rubber bullets you fire off
My Black people freedom to justice is worth dying for
All lives should be equal, we tried to be peaceful
On the frontlines, I’d die for my people
