This SoundCloud Rapper Actually Solved The Palestine-Israel Conflict, But Couldn’t Get The Listens
Heartbreaking news coming out of Miami this week, as local SoundCloud rapper 305 D$oundz laid out an amazing solution to the Palestine-Israel conflict, but failed to gain enough listens to really slap.
Despite having a quite impressive cover art design (a tiger doing the Keke Challenge), the artist’s new banger, “Peace in the Middle East (I’m Upset)” was only able to reach 160 likes and 54 shares, as it got lost in the anticipation of Travis Scott’s “Astro World.”
“Yuh, I had my boys Yung Hu$$le and King Coup rep my shit on their IGs and bump it on their Snapchat stories,” D$oundz says, “but I guess that wasn’t enough.”
In between the samplings of a Billy Ocean’s “Caribbean Queen” and the usage of airhorn sound effects, D$oundz pontificated on some pretty impressive ideas inspired by Palestinian philosopher Sari Nusseibeh, while also cross-referencing them with the pros and cons layout by Israeli influencer Moshe Halbertal.
“If only people could come together pop some xans, drink some lean, and learn of Netanyahu’s atrocities, we’d be able to work together towards a nonviolent two state solution,” D$oundz says, “and it’s like I say on the track: ‘I’m selling that rock on the low low / Invading the Gaza Strip is a no go / Aye, I’m hopping fresh out the Benz / Yuh, respect be the reward to all menz.’”
Although just shy of making the XXL Freshmen Class, 305 D$oundz has been shortlisted for the MacArthur Grant.
