Killer Mike Gets Hyper-Political in “Reagan” Video

Rap music has transformed throughout the decades, and originally began as a form of communication; a retelling of their lives that mainstream America might not have heard about before.  It’s seen its ups and downs, and hasn’t always been very positive or conscious – but that sort of revival is coming back through lyrics once again.

Killer Mike’s new album “R.A.P Music” features a track titled “Regan” that serves as a political notice, or state of the union address – something we rarely hear from the likes of Killer Mike.  The video that accompanies the song is also filled with political edginess and a gruesome snapshot of pop culture.
