These days, Calle 13 is making more headlines for their political views than for their music. Just a few weeks after praising WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, they’ve popped up in Palestine to shoot a new video.
According the Latin Gossip, Residente and Visitante went overseas to complete work on “Multi_Viral.” This, of course, is the same track that Assange appears on and seems to be stirring a lot of controversy.
Residente certainly doesn’t care though. In fact, he even brought up some similarities between Palestine and his Puerto Rican homeland.
“We don’t have a president,” he said in a recent interview. “Our president is Obama. We didn’t vote for him, but he is our president. We have a government, a government that is also half-cosmetic.”
At this rate, we’re very curious to see other interesting words Residente spews out in the “Multi_Viral” lyrics sheet.
