Several weeks ago—pre-Obama, pre-Rahm, pre-(potentially)Hillary, pre-Change.gov—RCRD LBL debuted a stream of Mos Def's new single, and, at the time, it did nothing to alleviate our anxiety over the politrickery going down around this country. In fact, we found ourselves spewing all kinds of wacky conspiracy theories that day, probably in no small part inspired by Mos. But now that we've settled ourselves a little bit, this song has taken on a new purpose: It's our new theme song for complaining specifically about New York's budget deficit! YAY!
