Prophets of Rage adress the issue of homelessness and economic inequality in “Living on the 110,” the new single from the Rage Against the Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup’s upcoming self-titled debut LP.
“‘Living on the 110’ is a song that speaks to the issue of homelessness,” Morello said in a statement. “The 110 is a freeway in Los Angeles and living beneath it are thousands of homeless people. Bentleys and Rolls Royces roaring by are literally driving on top of the poor and their makeshift homes, a picture perfect analogy for the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our times.”
Homelessness is just one of the major issues Prophets of Rage are attempting to bring attention to.
