For all the talk of chains and private planes, there still exists plenty of hip-hop with a real message, made for a very real reason.  Venezuelan rappers Apache and Canserbero are a prime example of this—their recent track "Stop" took aim at widespread police corruption in Venezuela.  The duo have managed to transcend a limited budget to reach a wide audience; check out an in-depth examination of their work over at Morning Edition.
