We’ve talked with a number of artists whose music is branded political. Some embraced it, under the idea that all art is in some way political, and some resisted, asking if sharing their unique perspective of the world is inherently political. Shannon Lynch airs music from artists of both perspectives on her WVAU radio show FLOWTUS.
FLOWTUS features political hip hop every Friday from 12-1 p.m. (ET).
