Southern Reconstruction

With the presidential election drawing near, more and more hip-hop artists are making politically-oriented music.  The latest to do so is rapper Sugar Tongue Slim, who wants to educate listeners on the Street Science of drug-dealing.  Judging by the sampled audio clips found on the song’s chorus, Slim believes that the US government has played a big part in the distribution of illegal narcotics.  What makes Street Science different from other conspiracy-theory tracks, however, is that the song encourages the audience to ignore the conspiracies and “Just Say ‘No’” to drugs.  Sir Clef‘s production sounds more East Coast than Dirty South, but Street Science‘s message holds true nationwide.
