Straight outta Tikrit

rap > gangsta > political
From a rap song set to the tune of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” broadcast in April 2003 in Iraq by Radio Tikrit, a station believed to be backed by the CIA. A Saddam Hussein impersonator performs most of the song in English with occasional Arabic interludes. Originally from Harper's Magazine, June 2003.
Reminds me of the exile's "Straight outta Grozny" by "Chechenz with attitudes". But from a, ummm, slightly different angle.
