Music Monday: Civil War Rap

I have a confession to make to the blogosphere  ever since I started writing Music Mondays I’ve wanted to do a post about my favorite music genre, rap. Unfortunately there aren’t any “real” rap songs  about the Civil War, or not any I could find. Fortunately in this world if you are looking for anything you can find it on the internet, so  I just went to YouTube searched around and found some pretty good songs people have made.  Here are my two favorites. Let me know what you think or what videos you found.



This is probably my favorite, USHistoryRaps flows over the instrumental of Jay-Z’s “Lost Ones.”



This one is really good too and gives a little more detail.
