“Immigrant” Video::Truth Universal featuring Bocafloja–Hip Hop addressing U.S. Immigration Policy
As immigrants across the U.S. continue to have their human rights compromised, with HB 411(LA), SB 1070(AZ), HB 87(GA), and other copycat legislation, Hip Hop artist Truth Universal responds with “Immigrant” — the lead single from his latest project “Resistance Vol. 2: Polygraph.” Himself a Trinidad born immigrant, raised in New Orleans, LA, Truth strives to address the plight of the U.S. immigrant, cite the commonality of immigrant struggle regardless of the land of origin, and challenge the contradictions of U.S. immigration enforcement policy. Amidst the sonic backdrop crafted by DJ Black Panther, Mexican born MC, Bocafloja, assists Truth in his commentary on the subject.
The video was shot in both Mexico City, Mexico and New Orleans, LA, as the two emcees were touring.
