PleaseDontStare Editorial: A (Real) Hip Hop Presidency
“Although it seems heaven sent, we aint ready to have a black President” – Tupac Shakur
When Tupac made that statement on his song “Changes” on his greatest hits album, I was all of 11 years old at the time and at that moment, believed what Pac said in that record would remain true for the duration of my lifetime. But lo and behold, we have defied that statement (sorry Pac) currently have the first African-American President, Barack Obama, about to make a run for his second term in office. So, that got me to thinking..would it be possible to see a day where we could have one of our beloved Hip Hop artists as the leader of the Free World?? PDS Guest Blogger and Recording Artist himself, Awkword, takes a crack at it and tells us who we should vote for on our ballet’s.
Shout out to DJ Benhameen and the whole team over at PleaseDontStare for publishing the piece.
