"Puerto Rican rappers/rockers Calle 13 continue their fierce criticism of government systems and oppression in their latest track Multi_Viral...

Multi_Viral is a collaboration with WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. Assange, who remains a controversial figure, seems to be making a habit of teaming up with hyper-political artists, recently giving the intro at M.I.A.’s New York City concert. The track, which also features Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine and Palestinian artist Kamilya Jurban, broadly connects NSA spying with racism, environmental justice, government accountability and militarism. You can download the track for free on Remezcla."

Imho, infinitely better similarly themed tracks :
- Surveillance by Rise (Assemblage 23 side project)
- Words I Never Said by Lupe Fiasco (who rocks)
Assange's part rocked though, maybe someone more my taste will remix it.

I'm a big fan of the video for P'al Norte. (And the song itself.) I think I unfortunately like the concept for this one more than I like how it actually worked out.
