The evils of the drug trade -- or should we say drogas -- are out there, and the Hollywood-based Mr. Entertainment & the Pookiesmackers aim to let you know about them. With the Latin-tinged number off ¡Socialismo Americano!, "Cocaleros," we are led down into the depths of "America's problem." Unlike Rick Ross, who is supposedly getting rich off cocaine in a motorboat somewhere, these guys are solemnly making the case against the greater social implications of doing things like that.
The video itself is a noirish compilation of archival footage that includes a vast assortment of white powders, needles, Coca-Cola signs, and mariachi bands. Pookiesmacker Richard Vergez, who got a little attention yesterday for some "sleeve face" photos, is credited with assembling this dark visual accompaniment. It's high time you watched.
