Rappers & Chicago Community Demand Mayor’s Resignation

Rapper Rodrigo Starz of rap group Rebel Diaz has penned a new song called “#Crook,” which demands for the resignation of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.

In the song, Starz outlines the issues the community has had with Emanuel, particularly around the police force. Chicago’s police force has the highest death rate in America for any police force. Furthermore, Chicago police attempted to cover up the murder of LaQuan McDonald, who was shot 16 times.

Civil leaders have also said that Emanuel has threatened them behind closed doors while presenting a very different face to th media.

Even the New York times has penned an op-ed piece calling for his resignation. Emanuel has refused to step down.

Here is Rodrigo Starz’s “#Crook” and the lyrics as well, which are rich with statistics.

A crook mayor with an attitude named Rahm
Who needs to resign now so I’m bout to drop this bomb
It don’t take 400 days to see these murderous ways
That’s what it takes to cover up what really happened that day
We only saw the video cuz somebody took it to court
Cuz somebody realized that yall killin us For sport
So let’s go back to October- 2014 ..
Where Officer Van Dyke shot a young black teen
Laquan way too young he was only 17
He was walkin away but he caught 16
a clear cover up.. Where’s the audio and the sound?
Where’s the footage from the BK that’s no longer around ?
a Month after Ferguson – the whole nation heated
If this video came out Rahm you would’ve been defeated !!
So im saying that you’re GUILTY of covering up a murder
You might as well have helped him out helped him hide the burner
I know that you was lying when you said you hadnt seen it
The other day you said it was graphic -so which one eeease it?
You’re a liar!! And you can quote me on this text
You seen that video ! that’s why the city wrote that check
u closin up the clinics closin up the schools
Then U try to blame us when these kids actin a fool
That’s 5.2 millions of reasons for you to hold me back
I’m from the wrong side of the tracks
Where the people fight back!

I see the crook in you every time ya speak ya mind
The crook in you – lookin me in my eyes Lyin
I see the crook in you you committed a crime
The crook in you Rahm its time to resign!

I see the crook in you every time you speak ya mind
The crook in you lookin me in my eyes Lyin
I see the crook in you you committed a crime
The crook in you Rahm its time to resign

I’m the ump of this movement Rahm I’m callin out
You just mad cuz your brother Ari got more clout
You worth 11 mil. he worth 34.
So we know that neither of yall don’t care about conditions of the poor
hunger strikers almost dyin but you dont care about Dyett
You ain’t even seem to care when the teachers went on strike
So cmon is this a man that you can really trust?
Whose father bombed Palestinians coming home on a bus?
Papa was a Zionist- son is a Lying bitch
The Cops are the biggest Gang not the Bloods and Crips
And every member on the council that said no to the release
Is the reason that we out here protestin in the streets
Anita Alvarez she should be charged as an accomplice
Cuz when black people go to jail who you think gonna profit ?
We need to talk facts
Cuz 75% of the people shot by police in Chicago are Black
300 shootings in a year These Cops are kinda evil
Rahm Emanuel doesn’t care about brown or black people
That’s some real nazi white supremacy way of living
He took 11 shots took a pause then 5 more to really kill him
Are you serious?
Call Garry McCarthy Tell him that hes Fired!
If not We burnin tires! If not we startin Fires
I AM Rekia Boyd!
The State Of Racism in Chicago Illinois…

I see the crook in you every time ya speak ya mind
The crook in you – lookin me in my eyes Lyin
I see the crook in you you committed a crime
The crook in you Rahm its time to resign!
