Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG Toronto, ON -- Thus far in the Unauthorized Biography series, Toronto emcee Shaun Boothe has rapped the lives of cultural icons James Brown, Muhammad Ali, and Bob Marley. For the fourth entry, Boothe changes his formula to bring us the biographies of two African-American leaders currently at the forefront of the national consciousness; telling the stories of both Martin Luther King, Jr. and soon-to-be-President Barack Obama, he illustrates that, though the civil rights leader's life was cut tragically short, the movement he led continues to bear fruit to this day.
