Flobots 

Fight With Tools


Flobots
Fight With Tools
Universal/Republic
Fans of hip-hop realize that long before the musical genre became mired in bullets, bling and bitches, it was a socially conscious, thought-provoking medium. Many of these same fans also realize that the message has gotten lost with the current crop of disposable emcees. However, on Fight With Tools, the Flobots are striving to return to the roots of rap. The beats contained within Fight are certainly catchy, but listen to the lyrics on tracks such as “Mayday!!,” “Anne Braden” and “Rise” and you’ll clearly hear that the Flobots are more concerned with changing the world than painting another picture of thug life.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
