StayUp.News is proud to present the premiere episode of PolitiRaps, a new series where emcees address social and political topics in cypher. The series is hosted by Baltimore Hip-hop artist Taj Thomas, who also kicks off the inaugural episode, in which he and our featured emcees give their take on the challenges facing Black communities in America today.

Featured in the premiere episode are Baltimore’s own Ill Conscious and Last Born Child (aka Ahmed Childs, reporter for StayUp.News). The instrumentals heard in the episode were produced by God Sense Beats, and the video was shot and edited by Jack M. Angelo. Special thanks to Nancy by SNAC for hosting the cypher.
