Political References in Hip Hop
I recently attended a G-Eazy concert. There was one song that had the crowd on their feet cheering. No, it wasn’t his hit, “Me Myself and I.” It was “F*ck Donald Trump.” The crowd went wild. Middle fingers in the air. G isn’t the only one in hip hop to feel this way. It’s actually a pretty common theme. Hip hop has become a political platform. It may sound annoying, but really, it’s encouraging. The biggest artists of this generation are provoking political discussion. Over these past year, hip hop artists are referencing politics more and more.
Rappers are bridging politics and hip hop.
