Kanye West - “Diamonds From Sierra Leone”

At a time when rocking ice was still en vogue in the rap world, Kanye West went to the left, like he usually does, to openly question the controversial diamond trade. More specifically West rapped about conflict diamonds and the West African children forced to mine them and fight in civil wars. The song, which was the lead single on Mr. West’s second studio album, Late Registration, definitely made a powerful statement.
