Bay Area, California rapper HipHop For President presents “The Political Liars”, his new single and musical centerpiece of his bid for the US presidency this year. Formerly known as Alpha Leo, the rapper officially changed his government name to HipHop For President, and his policies include legalizing cannabis, reparations for African-Americans, legislation against police brutality, and college grants for high school students with at least a C average. “The Political Liars”, which currently has a couple hundred shares on Facebook, features lyrics like “every election we go through this session / last time it was Obama in the recession / George Bush got a re-election / Bill Clinton’s saxophone collection had Blacks minds gone / then he signed that bill to put us away, we still didn’t learn our lesson.” HipHop For President released the David & Goliath mixtape in 2012 (Datpiff), and has released one single from the forthcoming David & Goliath 2, “Jesus Was Black” (Soundcloud). His 2009 single “My Time Now” spent four weeks at the number one spot on Hartford, CT radio station KISS 95.7’s Underground Countdown. His presidential bid has received coverage in The Source (read) and on KCBS (listen). “Black people always get fooled every election cycle,” HipHop For President says. “I’m telling the people not to vote for any of the candidates in mainstream media.”
