(AllHipHop News) On Tuesday evening (Jan. 12), President Barack Obama, delivered his final State of the Union address. The POTUS delivered candid commentary on the four main topics of maintaining the nation’s safety, establishing Congressional bipartisanship, bolstering the economy, and emerging technology.

The hour-long primetime speech was strategic in its message. While several of Obama’s detractors question his stance on the terrorist groups Al Qaeda and ISIS. He made sure to address those naysayers. “The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close…If you doubt America’s commitment or mine that justice is done, ask Osama Bin Laden,” said the reassured president. 

Rather than boasting about all of his administration’s accomplishments President Obama challenged himself and Congress to continue to making noteworthy political and social strides. Throughout the discussion’s duration Hip-Hop used Twitter and chimed in with its thoughts.

Check out the included tweets from people like Charlamagne Tha God, Karen Civil and Wale. The D.C. native became the first MC to open up for a president’s State of the Union address.

With his last year in office what other issues should the president address?

    His shit started off with 2 wars (10 and 11 billion a month each), Wall St in shambles, The Housing market fucked up, The Auto Industry damn near closed, Bin Laden still running around, The outsourcing of our jobs, Mitch McConnell and his Republican Senate on purpose not passing shit if he didn’t let the Bush Tax cuts survive, and vowing he would do everything to sabotage this man’s presidency on DAY 1, John Boehner/Eric Cantor and the House of Rep. sabotaging everything on the same note as McConnell, Social Security…..empty….everything he tried to attempt they tried to undo….Folk don’t even realize once Bush killed Saddam (he couldn’t stand Iran, kept his foot on they throat)…destabilizing the region, it opened the doors for Iran (who’s trying to enrich enough Uranium to obtain a nuke), wouldn’t even be any ISIS if they didn’t kill that man, he was fucked up, but his problem was with the Bushes which led to his downfall. After all that shit Obama came in with a super sized fucked up mess, and a gang of Dick heads to deal with smdh…With what he had to work with he did an ok job…Salute… We still have the CIA making things worst bring in that Afghan Heroin into our country creating complete havoc….Why are they still there? Bin Laden been dead….Raw opium (the country is like 90% raw opium) SMDH

  • Q.

    When Obama leaves office, white supremacists will have a have a jamboree, while the rest of the country will whimper silently.

    As fvcked up as these times are, this man may have mitigated them for a lot of people. Wait til Hitlery or Donald Chump gets into office…Ooowee it’s not gon’ be pretty!

  • Q.

    These are the countermeasures in case the People grow some nuts and some brains, decide to band together and revolt against the oligarchs.

    *”Thank you Barack. Thank you. One more year to go. Let’s get criminal justice reform done this year! #SOTU”*

    Mr. Simmons, what about Justice for victims of Maternal Oppression & Child Abuse who often develop into depressed teens and adults requiring CJ intervention?

    Is there no justice for Kendrick Lamar and Tupac, both men rapping or speaking about adult and childhood depression, as well as experiencing suicidal thoughts?

    How about Justice for Freddie Gray, deprived of a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood by an irresponsible maternal caregiver who ignored her parental and societal obligation to place the well being of her child above all else.

    Then there is Baltimore teen Michael Singleton. After being introduced to a life of hardship and struggle by a totally irresponsible mom, young Michael became so depressed he joined his depressed classmates in The Street, attempting to cause grave bodily harm to police responsible for protecting his neighbors from depressed kids like Michael.

    I am depressed too. Depressed that Americans like Russell Simmons willfully ignore the substantial population of “living wild” (child abuse victim Kendrick Lamar’s characterization of his mom’s child-rearing lifestyle) married and single moms who for decades have selfishly ignored the welfare and emotional well being of the children they introduce to life.

    What depresses me even more is the reason many people willfully ignore “living wild” parenting…because without a significant population of “living wild” parents raising “living wild” children, maturing into “living wild” teens and adults, people like Mr. Simmons would have to find a new line of work and venue for gaining fame.
