Activist rapper Jasiri X calls for a reality check on 'American History X

When the G-20 summit invaded Pittsburgh, rapper Jasiri X was on the streets, documenting events for a video to a powerful state of the union address he called "The Only Color That Matters Is Green."

It's not the place where you find many rappers, but Jasiri X is a cut above, a rapper who, like Public Enemy before him, delivers the news.

The Chicago native, who moved here as a kid in the mid-'80s, went to Gateway High School in the '90s and was part of the group Concrete Elete, is a disciple of the X-Clan's Paradise the Arkitech and comes on urgent and strong like old school rappers KRS-One and Chuck D.
