Far and wide people are expressing their opinions on the financial crisis. In the UK, popular rapper Dizzee Rascal tackled the credit crunch in his recently released music video.
Dressed in a top hat and tails, Rascal rubs velvet shoulders with black-and-white minstrels, a character in a Thatcher mask and cartoon glamour girls, while singing 'Dirtee Cash,' with lyrics focused specifically on the latest expenses scandal within the British government and bankers' greed:
"People act shameless
Tryna live like entertainers,
Want a fat crib with the acres,
So they spend money that they ain’t made yet,
Got a benz on tik that they ain’t paid yet,
Spend their pay cheque
In the west end on the weekend
Got no money by the end of the weekend."
