Video: “Reagan” by Killer Mike
Believe me when I tell you that there is some rap out there that goes hard on the truth. It’s rare to hear that shit on the radio because (mainstream) radio is part of the corporate machine. That the reason why (a.) most of the music we hear on the radio nowadays is all about materialism, misogyny and violence, and (b.) it gets played several times a day and night.
This song is one of many that speaks the truth with a nice beat. And there are others like Killer Mike that is out there using their lyrics to enlighten and educate. Don’t you think they deserve praise and support for their efforts just like many of us idolize musicians who produce songs to help us “escape” from the harsh realities of our lives? Think about it.
