RZA Lashes Out Against Trump's Immigration Policies on "No Refuge"
Published Mar 27, 2017Wu-Tang leader RZA has hopped on a new track from Italian electronic duo Parisi to make a powerful statement against Donald Trump's immigration policies.
The cut is called "No Refuge," and it opens with RZA pondering: "I don't understand how you could ban a man / From a land that was said to be a beacon of light / For men escaping the plight of tyranny."
From there, he details plenty of other struggles facing those looking to America for refuge — from poverty, violence, gender inequality and religious oppression, specifically citing victims of the Syrian War.
Later in the song, he flips Trump's own rhetoric on its head, spitting: "Let's make America great again, but not a place that's filled with bigotry, racism and hate again."
Fittingly, all proceeds generated by streams on iTunes, Beats 1, Apple Music and other sites will be donated to the United Nations Refugee Agency.
