 suggestions for a political/social issue rap song
topic by SkateboardT - 11-04-2006, 01:37 AM


I'm doing a project in "world issues" class (basically current events) about music and social/political issues.

where you select a song and do a report on it and play it for the class,

now in this class is a bunch of kids who never listen to hip hop, so they're doing a bunch of bob dylan, CCR, etc. (they're all good bands but seriously i want to expand the genre a little bit).


anybody got some good songs that would work for this?

keep in mind i'd rather stay away from the more broadly known rappers (like tupac) and I'm not allowed to do any public enemy, because all their political songs were featured on a video we watched and if the song was in the video you can't do it.

Nah man I think that would be to liberal.

I presented a similar project, I did KRS-One - Sound of the police. But there's a music video for it.



Here try this, I think this will work out great and impress your audience.

Somehow I highly doubt that said video showcased "all" P.E's political songs.

well it did about 4 to 5 of their songs and my teacher said that public enemy would probably not be a good idea to do.

props to everybody
