The Hip Hop Community Has an Opinion on Donald Trump

Well...I guess the week that Trump gets "officially" nominated as the Republican presidential candidate is as good of time as ever to make a strong statement. For those who caught Part 1 back in April, you're not going to get a different beat, just a new, interesting mix of lyricists. Needless to say, it should be telling that two out of the maybe five well-known white lyricists in Hip Hop chipped in verses on Part 2. If I were to pick a favorite bar on the track, it'd be Macklemore's standout line below...

"Your politics are like a Starburst pack, nobody f**cks with the orange one"

Maybe I'm a sucker for intelligent verses, but by far Macklemore stood out on the track as the most quotable. It isn't the type of track to do much more than give Fox News something new to complain about, but if you're interested in taking the temperature on where Hip Hop is at, you've got a clear signal on this one. It will be interesting to see how much pop culture influences the upcoming election because I have yet to hear any pop culture star embrace the Donald publicly. Sure, those who would be influenced by pop culture stars may represent a small slice of the voting pie, but it's hard to ignore a shot over the bow like the one below...#FDT

A very interesting symbiosis of politics and hip-hop. I have not seen such. For fans of good hip-hop, I suggest this Very convenient service to monitor the hip-hop event and buy tickets.
