I am Oscar Grant

Earlier today, I uploaded a video me reciting of Jasiri X's Oscar Grant Tribute on YouTube. It was performed on the one-year anniversary vigil organized by Grant's family at the Fruitvale BART Station. Grant was shot in the back by a BART police officer in the early hours of the New Year (2009).

Inspired by Oakland Local's Comprehensive Oscar Grant Memorial and Davey D's Hip Hop speaks out for Oscar Grant here is a collection of Hip Hop Tributes to Oscar Grant.

Each song captures a different energy, aspect of the 'story' and emotions.
