Stand up and Sing: The Coup

leave a comment »

For over a century, scholars have debated the question, “Why is the There no Socialism in the United States?” If socialism ever were to arrive in America (and sorry guys, it hasn’t), I’d like to think that Oakland-based hip-hop group the Coup would help provide the soundtrack.

For recent selections in our “Stand up and Sing” contest, which showcase some of the manifold ways politics fruitfully intersects with music, see these thoughtful posts by Luce, Wiz and, Weiner.
