Protest music has a long, powerful heritage here in the United States.

But it’s a little harder to buy from millionaire NBA players. I’m on their side and I still find the players’ posture in this annoying at best (stop with the “let us play” line, for example, because if you really did just want to play and didn’t care about the money you would in training camp right now).

Which brings us to Brandon Bass of the Magic, who we didn’t know was a hip hop artist on the side. But I kind of like the look and sound. You can decide for yourself on the message. (Video via SLAM)
