The Coup‘s Boots Riley had the unique opportunity to interview Philadelphia’s revolutionary, journalist, activist and political prisoner, Mumia Abu-Jamal for the online radio show “This Sunday At The Bronx Museum” for Block Report Radio.  Boots, a revolutionary himself, talks with Abu-Jamal about the personal vs. the political, and how powerful the people can be when they join together for a common cause.  Abu-Jamal discusses the radical nature of the inception of the union (which was created because the people organized and came together), the prices of oil and gas (and how complacent the people are given the situation), and the overall power of political organization.  As for The Coup, the group’s first two albums, Kill My Landlord and Genocide & Juice were both re-released earlier this year via Wild Pitch Records.
