Playlist of Songs Featured in AMC’s Series “Hip Hop”

AMC’s series Hip Hop: The Songs that Shook America consisted of 6 episodes in 2019. Each episode examined a “text” which tells how Hip Hop/rap music grew into the art form we know today and reached its current popularity. The fifth episode introduced the “rap battle,” so I’ve included 3 songs for that episode. So here’s the 8-song play list I made using Spotify.

I’m no rap aficionado, so the series exposed me to much I hadn’t known.

WikiLeaks: the truth is out there – feat. Hillary Clinton & Alex Jones [RAP NEWS 6]

Juice Media Rap News, with Robert Foster. Episode 6 of the Investigative Rap Journalism has dropped: December 2010 and Cablegate has burst open. With a steady trickle of Diplomatic communiques leaking out every single day, the Book of Revelations is expanding dramatically. In all the hubbub, the global community is forced to ask questions of its leaders. At the same time, perhaps a stronger focal point for international attention is the Wikileaks leader, the elusive Julian Assange, whose impact on the global scene is testing the limits of freedom of the press. How will governmental representatives from North America, Europe and the Middle East react to having their dirty laundry leaked? Is it all just an insidious Blue Beam Psi-Ops plot hypnotically seeded by MK Ultra, the Rhodes Scholars and the TriLateral Commission? Will the world ever be the same again? Join your affable host Robert Foster, as he executes a rhyme inquisition on some of the key players in the Wiki-saga. It’s diplomatic Rhym-aggedon…
