‘Occupy DC’ gets its own song by YouTube success Remy Munasifi (VIDEO)

Remy Munasifi, the comedic rapper who gave the Internet the viral hits 'Metro Song' and ‘Raise the Debt Ceiling’ is back to poke a little musical fun at the ‘Occupy DC’ and ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests.

Munasifi’s latest is a folksy dispatch from the scene of last week’s protests, released in partnership with the libertarian organization ReasonTV. A lyrics sampling:

“They’re saying that freedom

has done little to stop

Corporations from keeping

the wealth at the top

But at what point in history

would a kid and a king

both have clean water to drink?”

The Clarendon-based musician may have no trouble striking YouTube gold again with this one — “Raise the Debt Ceiling,” released in July, had over 360,000 views.
