Chamillionaire, Cultural Pundit

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


If you’re interested in a hip-hop take on faux news, global warming, and America’s culture wars, check out Chamillionaire’s “Evening News.” It’s pretty excellent. Chamillionaire, who’s always had a lot to say about swearing in rap music (see below), announced earlier this month that he’s going cuss-free.

Chamillionaire is most famous for “Ridin’,” if that rings a bell. (He’s also, according to Status Ain’t Hood, “one of the five or six greatest rappers on planet Earth.”) Another new video from him worth checking out is “Hip-Hop Police,” which, awesomely, features a cameo from Slick Rick.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
