Political hip hop...

 
  • Spearhead

    Hiphop Preacher, Sneaker Freak & Prophet of Simple Abilities
  • bros bfore hoes
  • K'Naan?

    Have been listening to his Dusty Foot Philosopher album lately. Interesting history.www.thedustyfoot.com

    But, while not set to beats, Zack De La Rocha gets my vote for best lyrical MC of all time. Makes most other things pale in comparison for me.

  • Agree with everyone who said Gil Scott-Heron..... Gatas Parlament from Norway are very political in a left way. Also props to Cage, for dropping the sexist stuff behind. His 2nd album was great. x

    I'm surprised that Non-Phixion was mentioned only once.

  • Gil Scott-Heron isn't Hip-hop. What's wrong with you people? Yall underground heads get on my nerves.
    Political rap is dead.
    The best Poilitical hip-hop is written on old trains and billboards.

  • its all about the Neo Soul baby

  • Reincarnation?

    badness
  • Definitely Immortal Technique

    Also, The Coup, Dead Prez (although they're a lot more "street" than political), Jedi Mind Tricks (very heavily Islam), Sonic Bloom (not well known at all, out of Cali), Sage Francis (a few of his tracks...), Gift of Gab (Rat Race)

    "Lyrical poetry is out for the time being, and something that is called rap or hip-hop is in. It is still poetry, and we can't live without it. We need language to tell us who we are, how we feel, what we're capable of -- to explain the pains and glory of our existence." - Maya Angelou
  • I dislike political music. im not interested in politics, and political music has very little replay value to me...

    Yo, if anyone else knows of artists besides the well-known underground crowd (like most of the artists mentioned in this thread) send me a pm and let's meet up on slsk.

    I'm looking for rare and local sociopolitical hip hop acts...

    Macklemore's dope. I don't have it on my computer anymore, but you should check out Ricky Pharoe. He's on the same label as Macklemore, cool dude.

    lol, didn't see you there lol

  • Aesop Rock - a bit
    Immortal Technique
    Cage
    Sabac
    Eyedea and Abilities
    Mr. Lif
    The Coup - The thing I love about the coup that makes them differ from other political rappers is how they tackle their dire subject matter. The society they paint is so shitty but their songs are incredibly upbeat and excited.
    Jedi Mind Tricks
    Dead Prez
    Mel Gibson and the Pants - Several tracks mention politics.
    Living Legends - Man Who Sold the World pt. 2
    Deltron - Not current politics, but the futuristic systems he raps about are critiqued about their politics.
    Non Phixion
    The Perceptionists
    Public Enemy

    Spoken Word -
    Gil Scott Heron - Whitey on the Moon

  • Dalek are pretty socio-political, they might not appeal to everyone though because they've got a pretty avant-garde/noisy approach to hip hop, proper heavy like but it's right up my alley.

    Rule of acquisition #407: You are gay
  • Zion-I
    Mr. Lif
    Truth Universal

    and a specific track off of the 1st lyricist lounge C.I.A.(Criminals In Action) by Zach De La Rocha, Last Emperor, and KRS-One

    E-Z
