Ice T: ‘Rap put Obama in the presidency’

Rapper and actor Ice-T appeared on The Today Show this morning, and he explained how hip-hop helped elect the first black president of America, Barack Obama. Ice-T says that hip-hop created a climate in which change and open-mindedness were possible. “If it wasn’t for rap, white people wouldn’t have been so open to vote for somebody like Barack Obama,” Ice-T said. The Huffington Post reports:
