    listen to the second guy on this thing, hes sick and he makes some good points,

    what u think?
    and what do you think about rap as a way of expressing political views?

    (i considered if this was worth a thread, then thought theres no harm in sharing it)

    You just asked us to listen to some random club DJ spit rhyming politic to a bunch of drunk 16 year olds, then asked us what we seriously thought.

    Well, to get into it, you must be about the same age as those kids in the crowd, which is fine, but make no mistake about what he's doing. It's just rhyming with no actual objective political points of reference. So lets get off that video note, because it's garbage.

    Well no, all rappers who spit about politics aren't really people you should look up to for your news. Immortal Technique may inform you if you really didnt know about CIA's connection to the Islamic Fundamentalist third reich, but then he blames it all squarely on America when the Soviets did the exact same thing. In fact, the Soviets trained the Muslim Brotherhood in the 70's, not the CIA.


    So to "Rap/politics?" It's just music, people saying shit's going down in the world, and not really worth a topic of discussion.
