TRGGR – 5.27.2011 – Pt. 1

Posted: May 30, 2011 by trggradio in Activism, Commentary, Hip-Hop, Politics

Which way will Hip-Hop go in 2012? Will we simply roll in lockstep with the Dems or will we push for a more radical alternative? It remains to be seen. If Common’s recent trip to the White House is any indication, we’re in for another round of sing-alongs for Obama’s reelection. On this episode (in two parts) Chris and Rec discuss Bakari Kitwana’s recent article “Conservatives, Hip-Hop and 2012” and the role of Hip-Hop in the upcoming election. We also talk about Obama and the dismantling of the Anti-War movement, the National Conference on Black Lawyers’ statement on political prisoners, the Cuban Five, and we hear weekly commentary by Mumia Abu Jamal. And we (all-too-briefly) honor the life of Abdias do Nascimento. Catch us next week as we pay tribute to the great Gil Scott Heron. Pull the TRGGR.
