Hello world. RAP NEWS is back for a special episode on the 2016 USA Election mayhem, feat. Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump + a touch of Jill Stein & Gary Johnson. This one's dedicated to all the Rap News fans out there!
I'm delighted to bring this amazing series back to life for this historic event! I look forward to seeing how this episode is received. I know it won't be the same without Robert Foster, but hope you'll find the same spirit and juice alive and well. If you like this new episode, and leave lots of loving comments for the awesome new team who joined me to make this possible (nudge-nudge!), we might just come together again and bring you more Rap News videos in the future.
I hope you enjoy.
