This is street ra-dio, for unsung heroes
This is the core of hip hop, the motivation behind it’s roots. Hip hop began as a type of “rebel” music, for people being oppressed in the ghetto.
“Unsung Heroes” could refer to people who are struggling to survive — they are heroic as they live their difficult lives, and are often passed over by the media and the general population.
