Republicans and hip-hop go together like Jim Crow and Malcolm X, but props anyway to the Republican Liberty Caucus of Greenville, a Tea Party-affiliated group, for giving no f#!ks and posting “SC Politics Resistance Rap/Hip Hop” to its site.
Possibly drawing on the impressionistic flow of Wu-Tang’s Ghostface and the anti-government paranoia of Immortal Technique, the RLC’s nameless MC goes in over boilerplate boom bap with straight lyrical spit. This is message music, y’all, and the RLC left the soft-ass hooks at the club for Miley and Drake.
To add to your listening pleasure, I’ve transcribed the lyrics to the best of my ability:
SC Politics Resistance Rap/Hip Hop
SC politics is an illusion with government intrusion;
No choice, no vision, just elite control in a globalist mission;
I’m locked in the police state in a spiritual drought;
South Carolina secret society trying to shut me out;
The RLC is the key, there is no doubt;
Graham’s illegal wars and Obama’s drones, wiretaps in Obama’s phones;
Innocents being killed violently;
Federal gangsters and I.R.S. thugs ain’t showing the Resistance and Tea Party no love;
I got blue-collar skills but no Bobby Harrell deals;
South Carolina politics more corrupt than Capitol Hill;
Landess freed my mind from corrupt institutions, the evil solutions;
Join the SC rebellion and Ron Paul revolution.
