I'm not a big fan of Hip-Hop but this video and the lyrics are wonderful.

From the youtube page:

"99" was initially an idea brought to the table by Video Directors/Creators the Locker Partners. Noticing the position (& constant social media blitzes) of Mane Rok, the duo who had talked with the MC prior about a linking for a project, approached Mane to see if making a Hip-Hop track with multiple MC's on it giving their take on the movement was possible. No stranger to rounding up groups for work, Mane immediately approached his cohorts Bravo One (who's body of work with his group One Eyed Kings is laced with "politically" charged material,) as well as his most recent collaborator Dyalekt (Diamond Boiz.) Dyalekt handled the production on the track while also lending his hoodtelligent vocals. While recognizing the idea that "99%" is a rather encompassing number, Mane then reached out to The ReMINDers stand out vocalist Aja Black to add her take, which led to the including Denver's political and musical champions Jonny 5 of the Flobots and T Minus Katlyn of Wheel Chair Sportscamp. In essence, giving a representation of WHO the "99" are.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
