Mos Def Demands BET Awards Show Tribute For Troy Davis (Video)

Mos Def & Talib Kweli were scheduled to perform here in Atlanta last Thursday night, but the show was cancelled following the recent execution of Troy Davis by the state of Georgia. As Black Star, Mos & Kweli opted to cancel their show in protest. I’m not mad & I applaud them for doing so. Troy Davis will officially be buried this Saturday & almost simultaneously the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards will be taking place in Atlanta. While at their Miami show Mos Def took the opportunity to send a message to the powers at BET to make sure they dedicated a segment to a man who was executed with no evidence of guilt. Should be interesting to see how many other artists will speak out if given the platform.

Killer Mike Speaks at the Troy Davis Rally (Video)

Mike Bigga aka Killer Mike along with Big Boi were the only two prominent rap artists to make the trek to Jackson Georgia to rally for Troy Davis who was facing execution for a crime where there is a substantial lack of evidence that he had anything to do with. Here someone in the audience manages to captures Killer Mike’s words to the public in attendance. Personally I believe Killer Mike’s calling is not entirely in hip hop as an emcee, but he could very well be one of this generations great black leaders…IF he wanted to.

Lupe Fiasco brings his Lasers Tour to Tabernacle Atlanta. Here, Lupe strips down “Superstar” to address the impending execution (the very next day) of accused cop killer Troy Davis after the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles denied clemency on the day of this Lupe performance. He notes that his fans/followers on Twitter asked him to do so and this is what unfolds.”

Clemency Denied For Troy Davis

With so much doubt surrounding the Troy Davis case it just doesn’t make sense how the state of Georgia is still willing to execute Troy Davis tomorrow. It really makes you question the justice system because Troy Davis could be anyone of any race, ethnicity, creed, & any other background.
