SONG OF THE WEEK
Song: "New World Water"
Artist: Mos Def/Yasiin Bey
T&E manager Parisa says, "I read an article recently that said how Tucson, the desert city where I live, is seeing the worst change in property affordability in the entire world. All the homes built by the hands of locals' great-great-grandparents in the barrios are now being bought out and flipped for millions of dollars by the likes of Diane Keaton (I'm not even kidding). Suffice to say, there isn't enough water in the desert to support this influx of wealthy newcomers, so pretty soon we'll 'be buying Evian just to take a fuckin' bath.' I think of this song every time I'm stuck in traffic surrounded by California license plates, or every time I walk past another new high rise being constructed during a severe drought. As Yasiin says, 'Tell your crew use the H2 in wise amounts since/It's the New World Water, and every drop counts'."
