REPUBLICAN WOMAN STAY AWAY FROM ME!
The inspiration for this song came while attending Ignite 2010, a conference hosted by VIBE and The League of Young Voters in Atlanta on the eve of the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
The purpose of the event was to bring together Bloggers, Artists and
Community Activists to see what could be done to positively impact the
mid term elections.
Being in the same room with so many creative and passionate people
caused me to contemplate what type of video we could do to encourage
people to take part. As usual the antics of the Tea Party/Republican
candidates made it almost too easy to make fun of, and because they
have so many high profile, although comical women candidates, we
thought Republican Woman would definitely get the point across.
As soon as I touched down from the ATL, I called Cynik Lethal to flip the track, he called in Lindsay Pavlick to play Ms. Palin and Paradise the Architech put it all together. Special thanks goes out to Shadow/Ava Lounge and the Waffle Shop for allowing us to film and Ya Momz House Studio where we recorded the song – Jasiri X
