Rapper Macklemore takes aim at Biden in pro-Palestinian anthem

US President Joe Biden finds himself at the forefront of criticism of US rapper Macklemore in the latest developments in the music industry.

Macklemore’s newly released song “Hind’s Hall” takes a bold stance on the ongoing pro-Palestinian protests, with the artist announcing that all proceeds will support the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).

The song, named after a Palestinian girl who tragically lost her life in an attack in Gaza, makes its debut Monday on Macklemore’s social media platforms and serves as a poignant commentary on current events. Macklemore doesn’t comment on his decision not to vote for Biden in the upcoming November presidential election, saying, “There’s blood on your hands, Biden, we can see it all.”

Inspired by the actions of pro-Palestinian Columbia University students who renamed the building they occupied during protests, “Hind’s Hall” reflects growing solidarity with Palestinians in the face of escalating tensions.

Through his lyrics, Macklemore responds to the recent increase in protests on American universities against Israel’s actions in the Gaza conflict.

This isn’t Macklemore’s first foray into political activism through music. His participation in a large pro-Palestinian demonstration in Washington last November underscores his commitment to social justice.

Macklemore’s repertoire, including hits like “Same Love” promoting same-sex love and “White Privilege II” highlighting the Black Lives Matter movement, continues to serve as a powerful tool for social commentary and change.

Pro-Palestinian protests have been sweeping across US universities, causing significant disruptions to both campus life and academic activities.

Sparked by the conflict in Gaza, these demonstrations have led to numerous arrests and confrontations with law enforcement. The unrest has not only interrupted education but also heightened tensions between student demonstrators and university administrations.
