Killer Mike and Big Boi get political at Brooklyn Bowl

Considering the recent government shut down, there's hardly a better time to address the current state of politics, and Killer Mike was the man to do it at the recent Brooklyn Bowl.

According to Brooklyn Vegan, Big Boi initially had canceled his tour with the rapper, but eventually rescheduled it, and it's a good thing he did, as their first performance together at the Bowl was nothing short of electrifying.

XXL magazine reported that Killer Mike opened with two songs off his R.A.P. Music album, but then moved on to some heavier subject matter on "Reagan," in which he spit rhymes like "We brag on having bread, but none of us are bakers / We all talk having greens, but none of us own acres / Cause free labor is the cornerstone of U.S. economics."

Then Big Boi made his big entrance with a live band and launched into "Bombs Over Baghdad," as well as the Outkast hit "The Whole World."

"Turn on the TV and everything is lookin' dismal," he rapped.

Who's your favorite artist that tackles some touchy subjects?
