Listen: @Peace - Kill The PM

Monday 25th August, 2014 1:14PM

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.

This piece of hate speech was funded by the NZ taxpayer to the tune of $6000

What an idiotic and narcaccistic piece of lyrical crap. If that's the best effort you lot have got no wonder your "down here broken". Get a life and do something lies a job. Come and see me and I will show you them. There are heaps.

I helped fund this A grade junk ? Gangstarr would turn in his grave knowing the art of Hip Hop has been taken over by uneducated surrender monkeys . Terrible beat probably mixed on an Atari from 1986, shit lyrics, lame hooks. Seriously, is this a joke or some shit? Sounds like it was put together by a couple of deranged 5 year olds. Come see me rooroo, i need to slap some sense into you.

John Key is a money stealing, uneducated shit prime minister, you c**ts need to learn more about what is going on in this f**king country. Before you comment, make sure you are 100% sure you know what you are commenting about the job opportunities in New Zealand have decreased immensely, and in order for these "low life scum/monkeys(?)" to be able to get back on their feet John Key needs to stop being an igrnorant twat. All you people saying there a jobs everywhere are quite representative of the National party, so good job to you A+ to me #bye

I mean like to be fair, killing the prime minister is a BIT far, but what they were actually saying in the song other than that is pretty on point and all ya'll saying shit like "jobs are everywhere get a job" are pretty ignorant like seriously actually take in what is happening around you and actually educate yourself in your own countries politics before you come running to John Keys aid and post all ur dumb ass death threats to these people making a lil rap song like ?? ???? ? ??? priorities man.

Beautiful- he really deserves a fair trial and life in jail- so its a little extreme, as is wanting to touch that spoiled little tart he spawned - but overall, great work. Keep it up ;)

But its OK for Holy-wood to produce a world wide movie about killing the Malaysian Prime Minister [Zoolander] - because he is not Jewish.

I cant believe I go to work to pay for this crap. The government given you a grant to make this filth and that makes me sick. Its hate speech and rape talk, I would rather pay for your benefit

I'll be the first one to criticize this Government as I despise the National Party. However, this song is just disgusting. If you want to change the government and the political process then making songs about raping daughters is stupid and is not going to work. We certainly need more artists expressing their political views through their art but this is just trashy hate speech, pure and simple. Unfortunately for this song, the real terror comes not from the threats but from the fact that the vocal performances, lyrics, and beat are utter shit. Go watch 'Planet Key' to see how it's done.

Who would give a low life piece of scum like you a job anyway. No chance now. You dont deserve to suck anymore funding from the taxpayer either. NZ dosnt need lowlife scum like you. You the motherf**ker.

This track has only received any response because The Dominion Post was stupid enough to do a piece on it. You can't argue this guy doesn't have a job since he does and obviously a message which he's entitled to express, but lets be honest the track is pretty shite, with unintelligent lyrics. It doesn't entice the listener to think about the issue at hand (high unemployment rates and low minimum wage) by arguing a point or highlighting a possible solution - it just says he's going to use violence - real mature there matey.

As others have said - if you have a problem with how things are run in this country, do something about it don't just commentate and then spread hate.

Wow, have you people heard of satire? I'm embarrassed for most of you that commented on this, if you knew what you where talking about in the 1st place you'd know that NZ on air doesn't fund EVERY song put out by NZ musicians. This is tongue in cheek and actually quite funny, but you wouldn't know that being that you lack a smidgen of humour. Hurry back to your tellys you'll be missing Paul Henry and the Big Bang Theory.

Wow, all this b-grade moralising over a song. But, nah lets not worry about the poor or kids living in poverty. Lets get angry over a song, and an opinion which is different from our own propaganda infused one.

Funny most of the negative comments are violent, or contain threats of violence - I think the word here is hypocrisy.

eat my poo's. blow my nob. get rid of socialism. there's my song.

you despise john key and yet you're voting greens? hahahaha. pathetic, get your political agenda sorted. vote for party policy, not the leader. he's a prime minister, not a president, dictator or god forbid, a tyrant like kim un jong. if you must vote based on party leaders, don't vote who's the best, because they're all shit. vote on who's not the worst.

I understand the whole concept of desperate art, but I dislike threatening words and absolutely hate it when you threaten to commit murder and rape. I vote Green, but I hate your song and I wish you immediately remove it.

The song is an honest expression of the resentment against a Prime Minister who has betrated New Zealand by only advocating for the super rich and big business. Key has been dekivering his goals of higher prices and lower wages and will increase rhe gap between rich and everyone else if reelected. Fools vote for him like turkeys vote fir Christnas

Jonkey is getting sympathy by the bucketload over this song.
I'm trying to decide if it's a bizarre creation of Cameron Slater or we're witnessing the stupidest liberal that ever walked the planet.

Your're absolutely right in saying John Keys has his own selfish agenda and does not care about Gen-Y. But to know you used my tax payers money to talk like an uneducated dumb ass in reference to a daughter is just asking for trouble. Dude if anyone entertained that idea to my family (rape) then I would happily go to prison to see the bastard dead. Don't expect anymore public handouts, its not money well spent.

All you people calling these dudes low life scum are quite wrong. If you listened to songs such as 'Listen To Us' or 'Be Like', you would understand the message behind the song. This song simply expresses the views many New Zealanders hold about the PM. Some things may be extreme, but there's a million songs out there with extreme lyrics. f**k the mainstream, go back to the underground.

Oh and @tekoflaps Gangstarr was a duo. Not one person. So before you go becoming a keyboard warrior knowing everything about rap, educate yourself.

irat280-Guru was Gang star in my eyes . I think we all know who the real "Keyboard warrior" is. Let me listen to some MF Doom while you play back some Soulja Boy or Pitbull LP's. Chump. - "Irat"-haha, yes you are.

Good job @peace -*- Personally I don't see any difference between killing honest/caring poor people slowly with policies and by selling off their environment/income/brand of their country, and one band saying kill the prime minister, presumably quickly, in one act of violence.
I think half a million slow killings already set in place is easily the bigger crime.
f**k the Cunt.
Vote this f**ker out
