Rap as a platform/format for political speech is an idea I am starting to warm up to.
I'll say it first so you don't have to:
"No shit Harbin, where have you been the last 30 years ?"
...i really don't listen to much rap music , but that ain't bad at all....
.....it gets the word out...
Thank you Harbin, granted it just happened to be this video I decided to click on, It was the right one. Music is definitely the way to start getting people to listen. When I was a kid, RAP was just starting, and has exploded in the 25 years since. I was one of those kids break-dancing on cardboard after school. When it took a gangster turn, I left it. I have always loved all music, my tastes run from Bobby Vinton and Bobby Goldsboro, to Iron Maiden and Mettallica, Grand Master Flash and Will Smith. I am listening and thinking about the 60's when all kinds of artists came out and spoke their minds. What a huge effect it had.
You have hit the nail on the head Harbin, and we have been missing a huge tool in the fight!
EDIT to add: just thought about my daughter sitting in front of her laptop for an hour writing out the words to songs on you tube. Powerful medium indeed!
This song has rap in it too, I only like the chorus in it
Immortal Technique is the rap artist in this:

That's because it's HIP HOP not RAP.....Hip Hop came from the heart.....rap came from the vengeance of incarcerated men and women.
All portray unity, cultural progress, and a ton of other good moral issues, but the mainstream still has these guys flexing weapons and talking revolution......making you the pawn for their game, when they aren't going to organize JACK SHIT.
What you need is an Independent Broadcast Network, a series of channels put out there to counter the bullshit, and give up the 411 to the people, on a daily level. One for films, with the "Sneakers" line-up, then one for music, one for Indy News, one for documentaries.
What you need is DTV via cable and satellite, with a huge line-up of productions geared at removing the corruption in the world........Let's Go Live
