Zack de la Rocha, KRS-One & The Last Emperor // C.I.A. (Criminals In Action)

This track came out on Lyricist Lounge Vol.1 back in ‘98 and is featured on “Music Is The Weapon Vol.2 - Street Knowledge”, a mixtape of revolutionary hip-hop.

"This voice shatters the calm of the day like an alarm
So wake up bright anew; and take up arms
‘Cause more is necessary than vocabulary war
‘Cause the toxic rock import’s hitting on your door
C.I.A. I’ll see you later; ‘cause your time is coming soon..”

- Zack de la Rocha

"As free market, capitalism & technology expands
the third world’s fertile soil becomes a dessert wasteland
so it takes fans to demand the government provide answers..”

- The Last Emperor
