Amiri - What Are We Fighting For

What Are We Fighting For

"Well its 1,2,3 what are we fighting for?, Don't ask me I don't give a damn, next stop is....." Amiri with his motivational single that looks to teach and guide not only the youth but the rest of the world.

"There is a very positive side to Hip Hop as well and it's not only in the fact that it will make you dance, but we also have a message that still resonates. As I watch the news daily, I continue to see police brutality in the forefront. What upsets me about the situation is the deaths have come as a result of petty and innocent things such as arguments, small tickets, and a kid dying because he was waving a toy gun. I know there are two sides to all stories, but with technology and cameras rolling, we have been forced to watch too many police stops gone viral. Anytime something goes viral, it becomes a disease and that's what has happened with police brutality as we have watched it spread to places we never heard of. As much as I wish it would stop, it continues and I could be next, you could be next, it's like a spinning wheel and where it stops no one knows."
