Roach Gigz - Pop Off [Video]

The following music video was shot in Oakland, California on the days
leading up to, and on the day of the People vs. Mehserle verdict in
the Oscar Grant case. Although the song "Pop Off" by Roach Gigz isn't
specifically about the tragic murder of Oscar Grant, we wanted to
capture the atmosphere in Oakland and the Bay Area during this time.
At the end of the day, an innocent, unarmed, young man was
intentionally shot in his back by a cop while he was being pinned down
by multiple police officers on a BART train platform. A daughter lost
a father, and a mother lost a son. All prayers go out to Oscar Grant's
family. We won't let up until justice has been served. The Bay Area
says GUILTY.
