HotSpot ATL Featured Video

In the latest video from his album of the year contender R.A.P. Music, Atlanta’s Killer Mike exorcises the ghost of America’s 40th President, Ronald Reagan. Lead off by President Reagan’s speeches on the Iran-Contra scandal, the song is no mere critique of the Reagan era, but an indictment of hip-hop’s indirect adoption of his policies.

“…So it seems our people starve from lack of understanding/Cos all we seem to give them is some balling and some dancing

And some talking about our car and imaginary mansions/ We should be indicted for bullsh*t we inciting

Hand the children death and pretend that it’s exciting/We are advertisements for agony and pain…”Watch the full video and sound off in the comments. Are Killer Mike’s observations on the war on drugs, the prison industrial complex on point and President Obama on point?
