The video above is a snippet of the new hit single, “the Anthem”, which was just released today by Bulletproof & the Fool – available exclusively at the CopBlock store. Below are details on how to get the song on your computer, smartphone or other device(s).
Bulletproof (aka Chris) and the Fool (aka Keith) are hip hop artists from Indianapolis. On any given weekend they can be found tearing up the hip hop scene anywhere in the midwest. They were put on my radar when their manager, Pete Sandage, contacted me when a Cop came on stage and took the duo’s microphones from them – see here – in the middle of performing another one of their poplar songs, “Call the Cops” (see video below). Luckily they had some back up mics ready and the show went on.
A few weeks later I headed to Indianapolis for a weekend of CopBlock events and, let me tell you, these guys go all day long. In basically a 36 hour time frame, we held a CopBlock Photoshoot, CopBlocked downtown Indianapolis and even had time for Taco Night. That’s when the guys told me that they were working on this track called the “Anthem.” I was interested and willing to help spread the message, at this time they knew it was going to be about filming police, so when I left them that weekend, we decided to stay in touch..
It wasn’t long after that trip that I was sent the mastered version of “the Anthem.” When I first heard it I was hooked, the way it flowed, the sounds of the camera in the background it just made me bob my head up and down. Especially when the hook hits, “you have the right to remain silent. Anything you say, can or will be used against you. You have a right to an attorney. Anything you say, can or will be used against you. Pull out your cameras and shoot the motherfuckers.” Add to it that the entire crew; Pete, Libby, Rick and more, are entirely on board with holding police accountable and we have a win, win situation. I rocked out to that track for days and still do!
