The Democratic congressional candidate for New York’s 19th district, Antonio Delgado, rhymed about watching porn, masturbating, and attacked capitalism in his past life as a “social justice” rapper.
Delgado, who is challenging Rep. John Faso (R., N.Y.), released an album under the record label “CD Baby” in 2007. Delgado, whom the New York Times considers “much less progressive” than other Democratic House candidates like socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, once tried to pursue a rap career to advance “radical social change” in the United States.
The article goes on to state the following:
Delgado’s first and only album, Painfully Free, which he released under the pseudonym “AD the Voice,” featured tracks against the Iraq war, capitalism, and American presidents, who he said “believe in white supremacy.”
The New York Post first reported on Delgado’s controversial lyrics, where he “hurls the N-word, slaps the two-party political system, rips the ‘dead’ presidents as ‘white supremacists,’ blasts capitalism, likens blacks to modern day slaves, calls poverty the ‘purest form of terrorism’ and boasts of ‘having sex to a porno flick.'”
“My music was always about raising our collective socio-political consciousness by challenging young people to address issues from racial injustice to income inequality to misogyny and environmental pollution,” Delgado told the Washington Free Beacon. “a well-meaning, close examination of my work reveals that its themes were intended to defy, not reinforce, stereotypes grounded in notions of black inferiority.”
