Courtesy of Esquire, we would like to introduce to you Trey Radel (R-FL), who may be the first congressional beatmaker in history. As he revealed in an Esquire interview yesterday, Radel is not only a Tea Party supporter and lifetime NRA member, but also an avid hip-hop fan. Now I've officially seen everything.
While a love of conservatism and rap music may seem like an obvious contradiction to most, Radel is not shy about his love for the music of Chuck D, Biggie and others.
"'Fight the Power' by Public Enemy... is a song that... if you really get down to it, reflects the conservative message of having a heavy handed federal government..." Radel said in his Esquire interview.
He was also kind enough to send Esquire some of his work, which can be found in the Soundcloud files below. They're honestly not half bad, either. Can't wait to hear the remix featuring Juicy J and Chief Keef!
