Hip Hop Artist 'Revolt' performs at May Day protest in SF
Amidst a crowd of onlookers including SF's not-so-finest, emcee "Revolt" shared his message of solidarity in song
During the May 1st Rally in SF, Revolt performed a menacing political rap in the middle of San Francisco's 16th street and Mission street intersection holding a home made boombox and a microphone. He provided music for much of the march with a subwoofer mounted onto his mobility scooter and blasted out tracks such as "Sound of da Police" by KRS-One and "Fuck the Police" By NWA (much to the crowds approval).
Many youth swarmed the intersection bearing black flags and black bandanas while Food Not Bombs brought out a home cooked meal to feed people. Onlookers danced and cheered to the music while SFPD looked on in stoic constipation.
SFPD grabbed him and said they were going to arrest until people started chanting "Let him go! Let him go!" repeatedly. Afterwards, the order was made to let him leave the intersection.
