Key and Peele Take on Hip Hop and Injustice

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 9.33.08 AM
Recently the sketch comedy duo Key and Peele used the subject of rappers snitching on themselves in songs to see if it made good enough evidence. The sketch shows a rapper played by Peele being interrogated by a police officer, played by Key, as to whether or not he committed the crime he said he did in his song. Peele’s character denies even though the song’s lyrics show otherwise. This is great commentary on what is happening now in hip hop with such examples of Bobby Shmurda and Gucci Mane getting locked up and their lyrics being used as evidence.
