Yeah, rap still gets a bad rep in mainstream media. But I dare you to find a more level-headed discussion about such a hot topic on any of the so-called news channels. What started off with a Killer Mike tweet, an outspoken supporter of gun ownership, grew into a discussion with Boston emcee Akrobatik, who was coming from the opposite perspective. With each side presenting their arguments, not once did the conversation devolve into condescension or name-calling. Something rarely seen in today’s heavily polarized political arena, especially on the web.
I think these guys just broke the Internet.
The full discussion is preserved for posterity below.
