Hip hop group @peace aren't beating around the bush with the release of their song 'Kill The PM', voicing a strong dislike for Prime Minister John Key ahead of the impending September 20 election. The group's frontman Tom Scott, is no stranger to penning politically driven raps, ahead of the 2011 his group Homebrew unveiled a song titled 'Listen To Us' featuring MC Tourettes. Despite the aggressive title, this new cut retains the jazzy tones that @peace are well known for, take a listen...




Update: @peace have further discussed their thoughts behind releasing the track on their Facebook page, read below...

Now that I have your attention, may I remind you that

130,000 ELIGIBLE PEOPLE UNDER 25 HAVE NOT YET ENROLLED.

The current PM does not care about these people. He does not care about the growing gap between the rich and the poor in our country. He does not care about the native people of our country. He does not care about the planet we depend upon to survive, the living organism that we as humans are a functioning part of. He does not care about the right we should all have to an education. He only cares about him and his friends.

I do not want to literally kill this man. I do not wish to have sexual relations with anybody related to him. Let's not pretend a silly little song ever changed anything. Last I seen famine was still going pretty strong since 'Heal The World' came out. It's just a song. No different from Thatcher era punk. Anyone ever heard "Maggie you're a cunt"..?

What's important is that we ENROL TO VOTE so that we have a chance to select someone to represent us who understands the concept of empathy.

I'm fed up with this dude. But if you want to vote for him, that's your choice. Personally, I'm voting Greens but you can vote for whoever you like. You can choose between a whole bunch of different people who represent a whole bunch of different ideologies. That's the beauty of the political system in NZ.

Please respect my right to express my disappointment for the leader of our country.
