Call this a type of Hip hop psychological experiment so to speak. In short, by using familiar mainstream hiphop instrumentals and also using the same rap rhyme schemes, one is able to use mainstream music as a means of spreading actually information. Many people that have listened to it are able to remember alot of the facts that are said within the song. This track is called "Attack Cities" a remake of Tyga's "Rack City". I took the original lyrics which applied to a strip club, and replaced them with information about United States military intervention in the middle east.

Please give feedback as to what you think about it.

Below is a link to the song, and below that are the actual lyrics from the song.

Attack Cities (Rack Cities Remix) by V.I.E.W.

----Lyrics----


[Verse 1] snap
Attack cities ##### Attack attack cities #####
we droppin bombs on ya mom are you a hippie #####
we kill em all blood falls no guest list
United states you don't know who you ##### wit?
Over seas all Gs, tons dyin/ (hey)
Niggas prayin for peace guns flyin
See hope in their eyes hog tie em
tear eyes out your face ,stop crying
If they wanna go to war we supply em
Dont trip tax dollars buy em/
Stop trippin nigga we run it/
start livin nigga we stuntin/


[Hook x2]
Attack cities ##### Attack attack cities ##### x3 (voice over of iraq news anchor)
we droppin bombs on ya mom are you a hippie #####

*voice over from young turks*

[Verse 2]


Look at the gas in your car (car)
That is the cause of the war
Drop napalm till ya body all chared/
why play the game when you own all the cards
Woah, explosives
fight for peace, you dont know #
dont trip though, you dont own #
causing mass destruction, they dont show it
Right broke niggas killin other broke niggas
pull em outta school sho you can pull triggers
High death rate, fake low figures
gangsta government, all go gettas
Afganstan, 500 billion.
iraq war 800 billion.
Add it up 1.3 trillion.
not counting, all the dead civilians (civilians)


[Hook x2]
1-Attack cities ##### Attack attack cities ##### x3
we droppin bombs on ya mom are you a hippie #####

*voice over from young turks*

I could not play the audio for some reason but I really like the lyrics and this is coming from someone that jams to complex hip hop 24/7. Its not complex, you just took some one elses stuff and changed it but thats apart of hip hop. Change context for metaphors.

This really comes together, at first I was like ehhh, last line melted it. Serious #, keep it up.
Afganstan, 500 billion.
iraq war 800 billion.
Add it up 1.3 trillion.
not counting, all the dead civilians (civilians)

But I think their is more to your idea then you know. Taking a main stream instrumental. Music for the dumb def and blind and turning it into something that actually matters

You should upload the song to youtube because soundcloud fails a lot and then plan on making a video to go along with it

Visuals are important with peoples attention spans and then it could go viral and all that or a worldstar post (maybe)

Thanks for the input guys, def helps. Yeah.. I try to keep content semi light, or people zone out/ stop listening. I personally don't think its my best work, but alot of people are saying i should make a video with clips of the war etc.... this may come to fruition. When the video is done I'll make sure to send it to both of you.
