Third Eye in Hip Hop

Hip Hop or rap has always been a medium to express knowledge, wisdom and commentary about life.  With that said, many subjects and topics have been conveyed through the microphone.  Public Enemy chanted “fight the power” while Tupac told us to “keep our heads up”.  Rappers have been speaking their truth and many started terming this “political or conscious rap”.

The third eye or pineal gland has also been referred to in rhyme schemes.  We’ve decided to put together a growing list for anyone to reference if they wanna hear some joints that speak about the 3rd eye.

Feel free to add-on by contacting us with artist name (preferably known), song, and lyric.
