Use the song Animal in Man by Dead Pres which is based on Animal Farm by Orwell, which is a critique on Soviet Russia and socialism/communism. It's full of great symbolism, shows your literacy and the teacher will eat it up.

Immortal Tech is great....

the song Harlem Streets is great for a look on the american government as witnessed from the inner streets...

Tell the Truth ft Mos Def might be a bit too crazy for class, but it works too

yeah it's a great song very well written, idea was ripped from Orwell but thats even better cuz you're showing that Dead Prez has a certain amount of culture despite the stereotypes that rappers seem to get.

Here's the song by the way. It can be used to critique our own government or any government since despotism
