Boots speaks on Hip-Hop, criminalization and mass incarceration. He shares the honor with fellow Evil Twin Booking speakers The Yes Men, and Evil Twin Booking Agency itself, in having his surveillance by private intelligence company Stratfor mentioned in a Wikileaks document. Boots was mentioned in relation to his involvement in Occupy Oakland and his potential for influencing the public opinion.
