‘Freedom Fighter’ (Mixtape)

    After being arrested at an Occupy D.C. demonstration on Oct. 15, a fire was lit under soul/R&B crooner Raheem DeVaughn. He immediately hit the studio to compile his most socially conscious works to date. The end result is Freedom Fighter, a politically charged affair that he says serves as the soundtrack to the movement of the 99 percent vs. the 1 percent. Your thoughts on the politics involved aside, you can’t deny DeVaughn’s pipes or his songwriting ability. He’s also got some of his more famous friends on here to boot, including Bun B, Ludacris, Bilal, Jill Scott, and Dwele. You can download the mixtape at Bandcamp and stream it below.
