Rap Has A Place In Protests
Rap music mogul Russell Simmons thinks that protesting is a great way to make the common man’s voice heard and that the protests are giving life to a new kind of rap beat. In an interview with the Tri-State Defender, Simmons says that he supports protesters in their effort to draw attention to the special interests that seem to have lawmakers’ ears.
Simmons is no stranger to the political process, and has been involved in protesting laws that unfairly on unjustly target individuals while corporate crimes go virtually unnoticed. In addition, Simmons is now calling for campaign finance reform that eliminates third-party influence among elected officials. In the end, Simmons predicts an expansion of the OWS movement to encompass the majority of people who want to get back to the one-man, one-vote concept embraced by the Constitution in a way that ensures that corporations don’t wield too much influence over the outcome of elections.
Spoken word – a mainstay of rap music – is at the center of the protest movement. Rap music and rap musicians are using the OWS movement to build their own base of fans, expand their craft and get more people involved in making the voice of the common person heard.
