I never listen to rap and am not really familiar with any of the artists. I did catch this lyrical poetry by Jay-Z via Try Handmade and dallas examiner.com.
"Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther King could walk. Martin Luther King walked so Obama could run. Obama’s running so we all can fly." Jay-Z
I really like this. I tell the girls at the middle school where I sub almost daily that they need to grow up to be president. Now they listen to me when I say that, because they believe it's possible.
