The sign in the beginning of this video for “Rebirth Is Necessary,” taken from J Dilla‘s Rebirth of Detroit LP, reads the following: “Warning! This city is infested by crackheads. Secure your belongings and pray for your life. Your legislators won’t protect you.” It sets the proper tone for the Tone Plummer and Mr. Wrong featured commentary about the terror filled lives of the residents of Detroit, infamously known as the Murder Capital.
