О музыке. Сейчас будет о-о-о-очень длинный тред о политическом хип-хопе - для тех, кто скучает по #RATM. Можно мьютить тред, если тема не интересна.

This will be thread about RATM-like political hip-hop - you can mute this thread if you're not interested.
Так вот, благодаря @KSyomin однажды узнал про Марселя Картье - оказывается, помимо шлягеров "веселись/борись как в 17-м" и "27 миллионов", у него есть и другие произведения. Тексты показывают потрясающее понимание не только истории, но и политэкономии.
Fight Like It's 1917:
You see how we do,building Soviets
That means workers' councils, powers we'll be holding it
Don't be afraid when we call for dictatorship
Not the bourgeoisie, it's for the proletariat
That means the people in control of the government
You wanna falsify history, skew and pervert it,
Nullify, tame it, change and revert it,
And put Joseph Stalin on par with Hitler,
But nothing could really be more sinister,
Than equating the fascist nazism,
Which is really a desperate capitalism
Marcel Cartier @marcelcartier - The Guns of the Viet Minh:
You wanna know about sacrifice?
Look at Vietnam!
Marcel Cartier - War Criminals:
We talk about Bush Blair is complicit
They were working as partners in case you missed it
The plans for Iraq were fully sadistic
А вот про Лучшую Корею - для жителя Нью-Йорка классовая сознательность поразительная.

Marcel Cartier - Bomb Threat:
I got more in common with the people of Korea
Than I do with my own government, damn right - believe it!
Он там ещё и побывал:…
Почему не расстреляли из миномёта и не скормили собакам, или хотя бы не посадили как американского шпиона? Видимо, законно, культурно и вежливо себя вёл - в этом весь секрет.

Marcel Cartier in DPRK - report:
Рожава не осталась в стороне.

Marcel Cartier - Comrades of Resistance
Marcel Cartier - Red Scare:
You say "democracy", naw it's demon-o-cracy
I'm tryna square off now against the bourgeoisie
We need a system by people for people
Socialism's dead? Well, here's the starting of its sequel!
Дальше - больше. Youtube начал выдавать "похожие" треки, и, как оказалось, удалось найти ещё немного хорошей, правильной музыки.

Rebel Diaz @RebelDiaz - учитель из Чикаго, родители которого бежали из Чили после госпереворота.
Rebel Diaz - Which side are YOU on?
"This music is resistance, it's the voice of the poor
I'm on the side of the workers, the teachers and lunchladies"
"it's the voice of the poor" - that's how rap was created actually.
Underground, baby!
Фоном звучит сэмпл из старой американской шахтёрской баллады 30-х годов XX-го века времён укрепления профсоюзов и становления тред-юнионов:…
А вот ремикс с корешами с района.
We're in so much debt, that the only way out is revolution or war.
So now the question is: which side are YOU on? - правильный вопрос человек задаёт, комментарии к видео тоже интересные.
Rebel Diaz - Which side are you on? (remix):
I ain't down with the rich, I'm more Richie Perez!
Don't talk to grand juries or cooperate with feds.
I'm with students, doctors, janitors, teachers.
We need living wages but they don't believe us!
Rebel Diaz - Radical Dilemma:
My radical dilemma is a bit of a problema
My people like whatever tryin' get a cheddar
Rebel Diaz - Viva Fidel:
Building with Mandela, building with Allende
Anticapitalista, el pueblo pobre está presente
I'm worldwide, like a Cuban doctor, revolution is the only option!
Rebel Diaz - Work Like Chavez:
Do the mathematics, Hugo Chávez was the baddest!
I gotta work like Chávez!
DISL Automatic @DISL_Automatic - американский югослав-черногорец (родители тоже иммигранты - видимо, бежали от натовской резни) с напористыми речитативами и очень тяжёлым битом.
DISL Automatic - Killuminati:
It's not about nations, race, color or creed.
It's about the need of elitist thieves to feed their greed!
They say you got to vote if you want to make a change!
Ha! That's shit's a joke, every candidate's the same!
Capitalism in a nutshell:
If you wanna drink they say 'f you pay me'
If you wanna eat they say 'f you pay me'
If you wanna breath they say 'f you pay me'
If you don't got no money to give
Then die muthaf! You don't got the right to live
They Don't Care About Us:
Do you know your enemy, their plans and who their posse is?
Fast food, tobacco, alcohol industry lobbyists,
Banks, oil, weapons and pharmaceutical companies.
They all in this together, 'cause misery's where the money be!
Потом попался Майкл Рендер @killermike - оказывается, известный рэппер (есть даже какие-то интервью с Берни Сандерсом), но хороший трек пока нашёлся только один - крайне содержательно: и про "рейгономическое чудо", и про рабский труд заключённых, и про геноцид Ближнего Востока.
Killer Mike - Reagan:
Ronald Reagan was an actor, not at all a factor
Just an employee of the country's real masters
Just like the Bushes, Clinton and Obama
Just another talking head telling lies on teleprompters
Не считая последнего, у остальных исполнителей - крайне малое количество просмотров.
Понятно, что всякие эминемы со скриптофейсами гораздо популярней.
Но тенденция приятно радует - если постараться, возможно, можно найти что-то ещё.
Ну и напоследок, "классика":
RATM - Ghost of Tom Joad:
Whenever ya see a cop beatin' a guy
Wherever a hungry new born baby cries
Wherever there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
Look for me ma - I'll be there!
Nimrod - "Red Army Revolution":
(~10 minutes of epic rap song in the name of solidarity)
So, just listen: we fight to overthrow the system, we're for socialism ...
/cc @Lenin_1917 @JuCheGuevara
Bambu - Chairman Mao:

The current affairs that wear my fellow organizers out,
Same machine that be wiping my fellow activists out.
From the comfort of a couch we make critiques of the world
While little girls in the mountains let the slug shots hurl.

Happy genocide of Native Americans, #AmericanRegime.
However, not the very first one since it has been started from 1492.

Marcel Cartier - The First Amerikkkan Genocide
