Guante: "The Hero" (Live at Occupy MN)
This is one of my favorite songs that I've written (and I've included it on about three different mixtapes, haha). You kind of have to listen to the whole thing to get it, though. The beat is by Big Cats!, and fits the song perfectly. It's always such an honor to be asked to perform at events like this, and I think that some of my songs/poems really take on new meaning in that context. This is definitely one of them.
Here's a more in-depth commentary on the song and what it means to me, courtesy of Culture Bully. And here's a free download if you want the MP3:
