The 10 Frisk Commandments & Other Songs Fighting Against Police Brutality

I love when Hip Hop steps up and flips classic songs to fit a modern-day scenario.. In this case its Stop and Frisk… props to Pittsburgh artist Jasiri X and comedian/activist Elon James White for this joint called 10 Frisk Commandments.. It’s a play on Biggie’s infamous cut Ten Crack Commandments..

On another tip..Here’s a couple of other songs addressing the issue of police violence and how and why we should stand up against it.. The first is a video to the song Do We Need to Start a Riot  by Jasiri X It was filmed in several cities including LA where Henry Rollings one of the LA 4 from the 1992 Rodney King rebellions showed up and gave a few words.

The other song is from Bronx based Rebel Diaz who did a song and video called Stop! Stop and Frisk..which addresses the issue and shows folks in the Bronx demonstrating against out of control police..

The other is from Killer Mike who talks about the police and their No Knock warrants and what would happen if they tried that on him.. The name of the song is ‘Don’t Die

  1. Thanks Dave. Jasiri is nice. The song is genius. The other videos are dope, too. Stay blessed.

  2. The Jasiri X song is creative but it’s a non-violent response to Stop & Frisk. I prefer the approach Killer Mike takes on Don’t Die instead. Police brutality won’t stop until people stop giving the police power over their communities. There’s no adequate non-violent response to an occupation and that’s what the presence of violent cops in black neighborhood is… an occupation.

    Davey D has been schoolin’ the Hip-Hop community to society’s (and even our own community’s) ills. The 10 Frisk Commandments is something we should know better than what resellers are makin’ off flippin’ Yeezy’s. Props to Jasiri X & Elon James White for a job well done.

  4. Different ideas on this subject inmhp is quite healthy. Let’s expand the conversation. The more we talk about it in our communities and others. The more people know where we are on this. Glad to see more being done with the beats. Like the “Made U Look” beat for Brother Trayvon ( Yasin Bey & M1), & the Biggie joint “10 Crack Commandments, convey the urgency of our message. Did Michael Jackson get it right? “They Really Don’t Care About Us. Peace

    This non-violent approach is bullshit. Don’t ever comply with police. Yes, try not to get your ass beat or shot by the pigs, but never give them your name or any information about yourself. They’ll alway use it against you. F**k complying with police. If you can legally carry a weapon for protection, do it, especially if you’re in Indiana. Basically, try not to get fucked with by police, but they are not our friends, unless you work for/with the state. FTP all day everyday

    • where did u get the idea in any of the songs folks were saying comply or see those who wanna oppress u as friends.. I saw a guy give some sound advice or be prepared to go all out..

  6. Here’s another song (video coming soon); AWKWORD – “Throw Away The Key (No More Prisons)” http://theurbandaily.com/1935215/awkword-throw-away-the-key-no-more-prisons-new-music/
