Skillz - 2016 Rap Up

Just like every year since at least 2010, Skillz revisits the stories that shaped our culture. In his new song "2016 Rap Up," rapper Skillz recaps the past calendar with aplomb. Spitting over an old school beat, Skillz gives his verdict on an eventful -- some will say crazy -- 12 months saying "they keep shooting Black men but wouldn't shoot killer clowns."

That line pretty much sums up Skillz's opinion on what 2016 brought us. The track comes off as a list of every absurd iteration of reality Americans were subjected to, like a dream you can't wake up to. The song culminates in Trump's unanticipated victory in the presidential elections and the hopes that pros will take back the reigns in 2017.

Clinton campaign sends legal warning on ads claiming she's 'under investigation'

Source: CNN

(CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign sent cease-and-desist letters to broadcasters advising that they shouldn't air ads from pro-Donald Trump PACs that include the claim that Clinton is "under investigation by the FBI."
The letters were dated Sunday, the same day the FBI announced that it was sticking by its conclusion that no charges were recommended against Clinton following completion of a review of recently discovered emails belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

"These ads falsely claim Secretary Clinton is under investigation by the FBI," said the letter from Marc Elias, general counsel for the Clinton campaign. A copy of the letter was read to CNN by a recipient.
The letter lists some pro-Trump PACs, including Rebuilding America Now and Future 45, and the titles of ads they are funding.

Prince- The Truth

"The Truth"

What if half the things ever said
Turned out 2 be a lie...
How will U know the Truth?
If U were given all the answers
And U stopped 2 wonder why
But how will U know the Truth?

Everybody's got a right to love
Everybody's got a right to lie
But the choice U make ain't no piece of cake
It ain't no MF piece of pie

[clock ticks]

What If time's only reason?
Was to give us all somethin' 2 fear?
And if so y'all, the end of the journey's so clear

Questionaire, What did U stand 4?
Questionaire, Who did U save?
When it gets right down to-wait a minute
When it gets right down to the nitty of the gritty
When it gets right down to it U take more than U gave

Everybody got a right to love
Everybody got a right to lie
But the choice U make aint no piece of cake
It ain't no MFMF [O(+> screams the following] piece of pie [computer blips]

Mmmm oh
Gotta (Gonna?) tell the truth y'all
Gotta tell the truth
Gotta tell the truth y'all
Gotta tell the truth
Gotta tell the truth y'all
Gotta tell the truth

If there was just one day
That everybody tell the truth
We'd all trade bank accounts & move to Neptune
