Sung by Non-native Makes Us Want to Visit

*Homer voice* "Hmmmmmmm, chocolate city..." OK, where were we? Celebrating D.C.'s status as a majority black city, "Chocolate City" is perfect Parliament, uptempo funk with half-sung, half-spoken lyrics. At one point, an imaginary White House staff is described, one where Richard Pryor is Minister of Education. Hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your lighters! We kid. RIP Richard.
