“FILM THE POLICE” – B. Dolan (feat. Toki Wright & Jasiri X, prod. by Buddy Peace, intro by Sage Francis)

B. DOLAN’s “FILM THE POLICE” pays tribute to N.W.A.’s infamous “F*ck the Police,” serving as a call to action for the digitized media movement while responding to the recent explosion of police brutality all across the world.

This free MP3 features a reconstruction of Dr. Dre’s original beat, brilliantly reanimated by UK producer BUDDY PEACE. Label CEO, SAGE FRANCIS, opens the song by picking up the gavel where Dr. Dre left it 23 years ago, introducing a blistering, true-to-style flip of Ice Cube’s original verse by SFR cornerstone, B. Dolan. TOKI WRIGHT (Rhymesayers Entertainment) follows up by stepping into the shoes of MC Ren, penning the people’s struggle against cops as a case of “Goliath Vs. a bigger giant.” Finally, Jasiri X (Pittsburgh rapper/activist) rounds out the track by filling in for Eazy-E, reminding us that police brutality disproportionately affects poor people of color.

With the Occupy Movement bringing various forms of injustice to the forefront of people’s consciousness, “Film the Police” is a reminder that cops have been a continued and increasingly militarized presence in public streets. Thanks to the widespread use of smartphones and video cameras, along with the popularity of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, the power of the media has been put back into the people’s hands as they document the injustices perpetrated by those who have sworn to serve and protect them.

While supplies last, all SFRstore orders will include a limited edition “FILM THE POLICE” sticker!

B. Dolan – The Hunter (Mux Mool Remix)

“I’ve been an avid listener of the electronic musician Mux Mool–and his affiliate label, Ghostly International–for quite awhile, so when the time came to look for “Fallen House, Sunken City” remixes he was on my shortlist.

I was excited to find that not only was Mux a reciprocate fan, but had a background in hip hop and desire to do more work as a producer. With any luck this, his remix of “The Hunter,” will be the first in a number of collaborations between us. He absolutely killed this track, and I’m honored to have worked with him on it.” - B. Dolan

B. DOLAN is about to embark on a EUROPEAN TOUR in September of 2011! Catch him on the road with BUDDY PEACE & DAN LE SAC. Details here: http://bdolan.net/2011-world-tour-schedule/
