My mom sent me this link.  It’s about hip-hop and its relationship to the upcoming election.  The article itself is interesting, even with a couple of statement I disagree with (including the myth that hip-hop has “political roots”).  The real jewel here though is the featured video section, with various MCs and hip-hop figures speaking about politics in general and Obama specifically.

What’s really interesting is that in the middle of all the positivity, you’ve got Ghostface expressing his disinterest in the whole process on the grounds that “your vote doesn’t count anyway.”  You can always count on Ghost to speak his mind.
