What If Rappers Were Political Leaders? Is Jay-Z The Next Barack Obama?
For years, leaders such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Stokely Carmichael brazenly and heroically spoke out and became powerful men who influenced great change, for the betterment of all people. What if today’s rappers spoke out to regain unity and create great movements?
