KOOL KID KREYOLA - ME AND MY SHARK FIN

Check out and contribute to the full annotated lyrics at http://rapgenius.com/Kool-kid-kreyola-me-and-my-shark-fin-lyrics. We'll incorporate the best comment...
Scuba Smurf's insight:

WhySharksMatter: How did you hear about the issue of shark finning? What inspired you to rap about it?

Kreyola:  I was introduced to shark finning at a young age going to school in south Florida and learning about endangered animals. However it really hit home when I moved out to San Francisco, it is a really big issue out here with the large chinese community. I started to rap about shark finning when I became involved with Pangea Seed. I created an infomercial for their “Shark Benefit Art Show” in San Francisco and came up with “Me and my Shark Fin” for this year’s Great West Coast Migration Tour. As a kid the ocean was a big part of my life, my father used to say “If you dont fish you dont eat” as an adult this has inspired me to use my craft to raise awareness and play my own part in protecting our oceans.
