Singer extraordinaire Raheem DeVaughn has just dropped a new Mixtape titled Freedom Fighter, which takes on the #OccupyWallStreet movement/moment (hear it in it’s entirety over at Okayplayer). The tape features guest appearances from all sorts of artists like: Bun B, Jill Scott, Bilal, Anthony Hamilton, Algebra, Chrisette Michele, Ledisi, Citizen Cope, Dwele, Chico DeBarge and Rudy Currence. But the feature that we keep talking about about is the Damian Marley feature titled “Revelation 20:10″. This track was featured on DeVaughn’s 2010 album The Love & War Masterpeace, but judging from what has been happening across the world with the current #OccupyWallStreet movements, it sounds like it was made for 2011. The track features the much used “Look of Love” sample by Issac Hayes and the heavy patois-laden background vocals the younger Marley has become known for on guest spots. Even with a rehashed mixtape beat this is a must listen for Marley and DeVaughn fans alike.
