K’naan and others showcase the work done by immigrants

Somali artist K’naan and others showcase the work done by immigrants in new music video

The new music video Immigrants (We Get The Job Done), features K’naan, Snow Tha Product, Riz MC, Residente, and Daveed Diggs. The video profiles immigrant life as they work, clean and travel to America. It shows the hardships of getting to America and some of the realities most immigrants face. Especially the many hours immigrants toil in American jobs that are not wanted by citizens but have to continue to hear taunting comments that “Immigrants are taking jobs”.

[Verse 1: K’Naan]
I got 1 job, 2 job, 3 when I need them
I got 5 roommates in this one studio, but I never really see them
And we all came America trying to get a lap dance from Lady Freedom
But now Lady Liberty is acting like Hilary Banks with a pre-nup
Man, I was brave, sailing on graves
Don’t think I didn’t notice those tombstones disguised as waves
I’m no dummy, here is something funny, you can be an immigrant without risking your lives
Or crossing these borders with thrifty supplies
All you got to do is see the world with new eyes

The song is from Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton Mixtape, which topped the charts. If you haven’t heard of Lin-Manuel, well you should google him for a start. Lin-Manual has had unprecedented success with his Brodadway hit Hamilton. Hamilton has won a record of 16 Tonys and tickets to this play have sold for more thank 15 thousand.

[Chorus]
Immigrants, we get the job done

Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
We get the job done

Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Look how far I come
Immigrants, we get the job done
