An economics lesson delivered via awkward white guy rap

School's back in session! Which means, for at least some of you, that right now you should probably be doing your homework instead of looking at music blogs. But don't worry -- we've got you covered. Today, you can enjoy all the bloggy goodness of Backbeat and get your learn on, thanks to "Fear the Boom and Bust" a Hayek vs. Keynes Rap Anthem. It's all the economic history of your intro to economics class, now with added beats!

That's right, it's that classic dispute between the economists FA Hayek and John Maynard Keynes, expressed as via the medium of hip-hop. It's rivals the biggest hip-hop feuds of all time! It beats doing your econ homework! And it's nearly as educational! Seriously, hip-hop hasn't dropped this much knowledge on economic theory since the Notorious B.I.G.'s classic revelation that mo' money meant mo' problems.
