Rapper and spoken-word artist Propaganda offers this 12-track collection of music that is a far cry from stereotypical hip-hop. In his album Excellent, Propaganda touches on themes related to faith, family and the ups and downs of everyday life. This artist avoids vapid party raps and tired gangster cliches and serves up thinking man's music. This string-driven album displays a very unique blend of backwoods blues with some California sunshine that is very hard to categorize, but is certain to move you.

Just when you thought that Kim Jong-un’s North Korean regime couldn’t possibly get any creepier, they released this propaganda video. Set to a strange, instrumental rendition of Michael Jackson’s “We Are the World,” the video depicts the dream sequence of a young man imagining himself aboard a spaceship—presumably armed with missiles—as it cuts away to American cities burning below. This comes just weeks after new satellite images from Google Earth revealed even more horrific prison camps once hidden in the country. Human rights groups estimate that in North Korea, there are approximately 200,000 people imprisoned in detention camps, and hundreds of thousands more have died from disease, torture, starvation and execution within the nation’s series of secret prisons. This video isn't exactly the whole story, is what we're saying ...

Update: After it was revealed that footage from the video was taken from the video game Call of Duty, a copyright complaint was filed by game-maker Activision, and the video has since been removed from YouTube. Discuss
