Jim Jones: Lockdown, USA

From: Lockdown, USA (2006/ 2007)

In observance of the 34th anniversary of the failed Rockefeller Drug Laws, Dipset Capo Jim Jones recently released a song and video for his new single "Lockdown, USA" which calls for the reform of New York's Rockefeller Drug Laws and an end to the war on drugs. The song also features former Roc-A-Fella R&B singer Rell, and samples the popular Marvin Gaye song "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". This track was recorded specifically for the movie and isn't on P.O.M.E.

Jones' "Lockdown, USA" video features powerful images from America's War on Drugs, illustrating the widespread imprisonment that has resulted from the laws in New York and their influence nationwide. Footage from a "Coalition for Fairness" rally, led by Hip-Hop Summit Action Network leaders Russell Simmons and Dr. Benjamin Chavis is also included in the clip. With "Lockdown, USA," Jim Jones has joined the HSAN and a number of other celebrities (including 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Reverend Run, The Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Nas, Diddy, Madonna, Susan Sarandon) in speaking out against the Drug Laws. The song will be featured in the forthcoming documentary, Lockdown, USA, which premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and is scheduled for theatrical release this year.

After you watch the video and listen to the song, please take action by sending New York Governor Elliot Spitzer and President George W. Bush a message urging them to end the Rockefeller Drug Laws in New York, and to stop the failed war on drugs in America.
