Chicago rapper Scheme Navarro salutes the sacrifices made by his immigrant parents on "Hunger of Memory."


The Trump administration's immigration ban is the latest chapter of this country's long history of antagonism towards immigrants. In "Hunger of Memory," Chicago rapper Scheme Navarro reflects on the difficulties his family has faced since emigrating to the United States over a simmering beat cooked up by Custom and Serious. His accompanying statement:

"The artwork is my father (on far left) with his friends working in farms in the US in the 70s. He came in search of a dream. Hoping to make a life for his wife (my mother) and his daughters (my sisters) back in Mexico. He eventually returned because he couldn’t do it without them and they all came back as a family. I was born and raised in Chicago. I’ve been given countless opportunities because of the sacrifices my parents made. I will forever be grateful. Thank you to all the immigrants in our beautiful country that make it run every day.”

Hunger of Memory is the intro track on Navarro's upcoming album De Este Lado Tambien Hay Sueños. (On This Side We Have Dreams Too)

Quotable Lyrics

So conflicted, feeling like a misfit
I was born here, but... I feel so different
Actually, you're the one that puts the fear in me
'Cause at home I'd probably walk aroun with dignity
