This week for Black Music Month we hit the barbershops to discuss hip-hop & politics. A lot of rap music in the 80s and 90s had a strong political edge. What type of socially relevant messages are emanating from hip-hop today?

When hip hop artists speak out about politics does that matter to you? Does hip-hop influence what you do at the polls?

What about Barack Obama? Is he the first hip hop president?

How about hip hop today? Is it still socially relevant as a voice for the voiceless or has it lost its political edge?

See what the guys had to say this week on the Barbershop Buzz.
