the ongoing battle between hip hop artists and Immigration continues

December 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

“The first video from Jamieson’s follow up EP I Came, I Saw Vol. II was inspired by recent controversy surrounding the issue of immigration. While debates have primarily focused on the issue of illegal immigration from Mexico, South America and Latin American countries, it’s important to note that these debates have an impact on immigrants from all countries, legal and illegal. The recent passing of Arizona Senate Bill 1070 has been widely criticized because many have felt it would encourage racial profiling, harassment and discrimination against Hispanics regardless of their legal status. The most controversial provisions of the bill (currently on hold) give authorities the right to detain anyone suspected of being in the US illegally, requiring individuals to carry proper documentation of their legal status with them at all times. As an immigrant himself Jamieson empathizes with those affected by the issues surrounding immigration, and for that reason he has taken the opportunity to incorporate his portrayal of the recent debates in the Foreign Exchange. This second track from I Came, I Saw Vol. II features Production by Xplosive and Video Production MonStar Films.” (hiphop ruckus)
