Words of Others | This World Ends Now

Lupe Fiasco is becoming a regular in Words of Others. I love his music, and he is amazing at mixing in commentary, politics, and activism.

He released a mix tape. “Friend of the People” on Thanksgiving, and I have been listening to it a lot. It was obviously put together in a short period of time and then released: the Penn State creep Jerry Sandusky is mentioned, and Occupy Wall Street is in there a lot.

The Words of Others comes from the last song on the tape, which is an anthem for Occupy Wall Street. The chorus is simple but I think it sums up all the disparate messages of the Occupy movement:

This world ends, this world ends
This world ends, this world ends
Now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now

It’s a great song, and I found this video with the music nicely paired with video from Occupy. I can’t figure out if this is some sort of offical Lupe video or not, these mix tape things can be pretty ambiguous:
