Big Boi, Killer Mike & Bassnectar Join Tom Morello Of Rage Against Racial Injustice In "Rabbit's Revenge"
That #BlackLivesMatter movement continues.
After almost 30 years, the legendary guitarist and Prophets Of Rage member Tom Morello continues to use music as his platform to fight for social justice. He shows no signs of slowing in his new song "Rabbit's Revenge", with the electronic DJ/producer Bassnectar and Dungeon Family members Big Boi and Killer Mike.
The song is the first single from her upcoming album, The Atlas of Metro, and its featured in the trailer for the upcoming movie Predators. Morello, known for his crunchy punk-rock style of guitar and the eardrum-piercing chords, shreds his way through the track with Big Boi and Killer Mike fiercely rhymes over Bassnectar the cacophonous production.
Morello offers a view on the concept of the song and of the cross-genrenderground album. "The rabbit's Revenge' is the hard-rocking, cross-genre banger I was looking for when I envisioned The Atlas Underground record," Morello says of the napalm of a track. "Bassnectar, Big Boi, Killer Mike and I combining forces to fight against the police brutality. We are not violent, but the music is."
The song visual starts with a hood of shadow with a menacing distorted voice that says: the songs of the chorus "we can see what is going on, we can read between the lines." From then on, Morello is found only in the dark cellar before being joined by the Outkast rapper and the Execution of The Jewels of the MC. Throughout the song, there is an ongoing display of African-American victims who were killed by the white oppressors and police officers.
