Kanye West has joined a musical boycott of Arizona's new immigration law, which has caused a firestorm of controversy.
Zach de la Rocha of Rage Against The Machine has sparked the protest and the rock rapper furnished a list of musicians that have supported the movement.
West has been joined by Cypress Hill, Conor Oberest, Sonic Youth, Massive Attack, Ozomatli, Rise Against, Pitbull and Tenacious D.
De la Rocha said their boycott of the state was comparable to the legendary boycott of the Montgomery Bus system in the 60’s, which sparked the Civil Rights Movement.
"When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, they arrested her. As a result, people got together and said we are not going to ride the bus until they change the law. It was this courageous action that sparked the Montgomery bus boycott,” a statement read. “What if we got together, signed a collective letter saying, "we're not going to ride the bus", saying we are not going to comply. We are not going to play in Arizona. We are going to boycott Arizona?!"
Many groups, organizations and even cities have opted or proposed boycotting Arizona for the immigration law. The city of Los Angeles has approved an economic boycott of Arizona, which will result in about $8 million in lost revenue from contracts. Another $58 million could be affected in other contracts and investments, many of which lie in air travel.
Opponents of the immigration law claim mandate promotes racial profiling and is inherently unconstitutional. It lets officer of the law make personal judgements whether or not there is a "reasonable suspicion" that the person is in the United States illegally.
The law takes affect at the end of July.

From a Jamaican Gully Town to Jamaica, Queens, Young Money's Drake and Lil Wayne have the mixtape circuit in a tizzy right now. Drake's Wayne-featured Miss Me-even if they told me months ago — is a must-have for mixtape DJs right now. It may be the biggest new song to hit the circuit in weeks.
Despite all the anticipation Drizzy has for his upcoming Thank Me Later LP (due June 15), the 23 year-old Canadian knows that he is not in any way filling Wayne's shoes. Drake will correct you if you say he's "holding it down" for Weezy during the New Orleans fireman's time in jail.
"You know what, man? I rap and I rap very confident. But in my actually head, I can never hold down Young Money because I'm not Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne is who we look up to. He's our mentor. I will definitely do everything to keep the brand going, keep Young Money on people's minds. But Lil Wayne is the only one — he's the epicenter of that all. I definitely don't wanna take on that responsibility. I just wanna put out this album, give the people this great music and have the people understand it's coming from Young Money. If you do enjoy it, then please, give all the credit to Young Money because that's who I represent. But as far as me being able to 'hold it down,' that's not even a conversation. Lil Wayne is Lil Wayne. He's my hero, my mentor and he's the reason I'm here. I do it in honor of him as opposed to filling the void."
"Miss Me" has appeared on the mixtape circuit in a variety of forms. First it was just a Drake verse and an alternate chorus, then it was the Drake verse, alternate chorus and a snippet of Wayne's verse. Finally, the mastered and complete version landed on the Internet and mixtapes this week.
"It's a pretty straightforward [song]," Drake told us when his Away From Home Tour kicked off several weeks ago. "It's a song about being away from what you love and hoping that when you're gone, doing you, somebody out there misses you. It goes for Wayne in his situation and it goes for me in my situation, 'cause I'm on the road for I don't how long right now."
Drake also talks about marrying Nicki Minaj on the track, while Weezy bounces off the walls on a myriad of subjects.
