Rap isn't such crap with a message like this

Usually I am not a huge fan of rap, mainly because I prefer the lyrics and message of other types of music.
But this one caught my and the nation's attention...'Handlebars' by Flobots is the story of two young friends
who part ways. One goes the corporate route (The 'C' stands for corporate greed and power), and eventually 
becomes a dictator obsessed with power (they compare him to Hitler, and some say Bush in a more subtle
way). The other goes the way of the dove, or peace and lives a humble life. He tries to overcome his old 
friend and what he has done- but in the end, finds that it is a lost cause. Talk about reality.

Check it out.
