"I'm just trying to protect my stacks / Mitt Romney don't pay no tax."
- Kanye West "To The World"
Last night, Cruel Summer leaked in full and the interweb-savvy heard the eye-raising line above on the album's first track "To The World" by Kanye West & R. Kelly. 'Ye was referencing Romney's refusal to release a number of tax returns and his low tax rate.
With the election less than 2 months away, hip hop is definitely taking notice (see: Nicki Minaj on Romney and Obama's response) and that's only going to be more prevalant in these days and weeks ahead. I'm excited to see that politics is a topic in hip hop - to hear artist's perspective and start the conversation amongst the listeners.
What do you think of Kanye's line on Mitt Romney?
