2018 TOP 3 Political HipHop Songs

Rap or HipHop music is known for its political messages. In 2018, Childish Gambino rocked the boat with his highly successful viral video, ‘This Is America’ which has recorded over 400 million YouTube views. The song addresses the wider issue of gun violence in the United States, the high rate of mass shootings in the United States, along with longstanding racism and discrimination against African Americans.


The song inspired some other covers among which are Falz ‘This Is Nigeria’ (pulled over 15 million YouTube views)  and   I-NZ’s ‘This Is Iraq (has over 4 million YouTube views). Falz song touched on issues peculiar to Nigeria and later sparked up a row between the artistes and the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) who threatened to drag the artiste to court. The video was endorsed by American rapper and enterpreneur, Sean Combs (aka P. Diddy).



Dubai based Iraqi rap artiste, I-NZ also went ahead to record his own version ‘This is Iraq’. I-NZ, a 33-year-old Iraqi-Kiwi whose real name is Majid, sought to use Gambino’s song to send a message to the world about what has happened to his country of heritage since the US invasion.


A Woman In A Coma For Over 10 Years Gave Birth Last Month

…Now Police Want DNA From Men Who Work At Facility
A woman who has been in a coma for more than a decade gave birth recently while in an Arizona care facility and now authorities are seeking DNA from the male workers there.

The woman, who gave birth to a boy on December 29, is a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe and has long been in a vegetative state, the tribe's chairman said Tuesday. CNN is not reporting the woman's name because she is the victim of sexual abuse.
"When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers," chairman Terry Rambler said.
Hacienda HealthCare in Phoenix said police detectives served a search warrant Tuesday seeking DNA from men who work there.
Police said they didn't have any updates Tuesday but Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Friday there was an ongoing investigation.
