First up, I'm not into politics, I've never chained myself to a tree to save a rain forest, and I've never joined a anti-war protest. That being said, most politicians can suckadick, making the rich richer, the poor poorer, filling their pockets with money that should be spent on public shit and of course sending millions of soldiers to fight a war that shouldn't be fought. I'm sure George Bush, Tony Blair and John Howard's sons and daughters aren't enlisted in any defence force.
On this post I've chucked up some war tracks by several rappers with their own way of hitting the subject, Paris comes from the point of view of a young African American student that gets tricked into enlisting into the army and then goes on a so called 'peace keeping mission' slaughtering innocent people in the track 'AWOL' from his 2003 'Sonic Jihad' which is one of the best albums to come out this millenium. Richmond CA's C.I.N. member B-Dub a.k.a. B-Double (one of the most under rated emcees with his fast double timed raps) has a track called 'We Commend You' on his 'World War I Mixxtape' where he takes an approach I've never heard before, giving shout outs to all the soldiers that risk their lives in war, and he tries to relate them to the war he's living in, the concrete jungle war in his ghetto, trying to stay alive.
There's a few other tracks I put up and I know there is a few more that don't come to mind right now and I'm sure there's a heap more that I don't even know about.
This post is dedicated to the resignation of Donald Rumsfeld.
