6:22 am
life gun fights john hendren reports from the place where it all starts. to. matter. it's vivid and violent and proudly made in chicago. the drill raf took off in two thousand and twelve the year the f.b.i. named chinatown america's most dangerous city its founding fathers chief keef. question right. now from the windy city to london where you tube removed thirty videos at the request of metropolitan police who found the incited violence . this exploding musical genre is accused of sending violence spilling from the speakers to the street i've listened to enough. to buy a little sort of. redeeming value in terms of the narrative. as it is unfolding. the streets of america other than reflect the sort of
6:23 am
wanton violence. solutions warts. and that solution will soften for many drill rappers life imitates art little jo-jo when j. loud were gunned down in two thousand and twelve king louis in two thousand and fifteen in the list goes on. here in the birthplace of drill rap where thirty five hundred people were shot and six hundred fifty killed last year even some fans say the music the fumes the fury on the street called. and they. will employ. somebody rapping like load up the block. and i get somebody who don't like me and i'll rattle around what. i'm going. kill and that boy lives. up here in chicago's south side where drill rap began
6:24 am
people say the violence was here long before rappers started talking about it the reality is in chicago we have so many homeless every year and it's been this way for the last twenty or thirty years a lot of guys who roam the streets of chicago mainly to go that's their experience that's what happened here in chicago for critics of the city's latest export the key is letting the videos go viral and not the violence john hendren congress. so until really cool is this assistant editor once upon a grime that's an online publication that focuses on the u.k. music scene and he joins me now via skype and sneery warm welcome to the program thanks for being with us tell me a bit more about the difference between chicago and the u.k. london rap that we're talking about here. generally there isn't really much difference to the sound is just the main difference the limitations of presently
6:25 am
the violin the same passion and you take this. and say why do you think this conversation is surfacing now this repeated linking that's in the music and the violence what's your take. i personally believe the government has been kind of going to things to push it onto the full truth that it was run music and music and it's not the kinds of music and then you had people claiming we that kind of thing or games it was so they just kind of ran out of options to play but that's not really my area should be so is it is if they were to say antony that this music is kind of more like a war cry is so it's a way to explain the experience of everyday life if i can put it like that the i definitely say so it kind of highlights what they're going through and a lot of us to them the days especially when they can the bigger the rep's institutes like country they will highlight what they've been through and it's the
6:26 am
same sort of thing. in terms of removing the videos antony does that just make them to some degree watching the more comfortable i don't know what's the what's the sense behind that decision by the mets. i don't think there was too much since behind it i mean people don't want to watch the truth is you don't find another person in. the same. sense i don't think. men. pounding the news is going to really help anything this is very good it makes things worse actually because that now they can have a platform to produce music and potentially get out of the environment they're in and so and so they is that the way forward you think for this discussion between the authorities that don't sort of appear to understand what the drill music is in itself a voice and if that that doesn't have an outlet then actually your presents they just make in the problem itself more intense. yeah definitely they please the map
6:27 am
but try to aid the community isn't actually going towards the place and try to help instead of just banning the only outlet that they have is the only that was the people in the town in my view generally have it's. just the two drunks in the room and music was one of the outlets for another to happen in there. and severely could there joining me live antony thanks very much. for the u.s. is increasing the pressure on china over trade by threatening even higher tariffs on chinese imports present charm for jesus china of unfair trade practices and is pushing putting pressure on beijing to reform china's retaliated with tariffs of its own that's affected china's supply of soybeans as our china correspondent jim buy reports from hay long cheng province. farmland is precious in china only fifteen percent of the country is arable that makes the russian fertile
6:28 am
province of hay long jiang very important especially now. close to the border with russia this is soybean country. china is the world's largest consumer of soybeans but it can't grow enough and so is reliant on imports to meet demand that means the decision to impose a twenty five percent levy on u.s. soil beans creates risk yet in this province the trade fight appears to be having a welcome impact. damas like modern family being urged by the local government to switch their fields to soil from corn offering subsidies as an incentive that'll raise incomes moon says he has a lot to thank president trump for who won when you know how when china stops importing from the united states is possible what the price of domestic soybeans
6:29 am
welcome and that means we will make more money. soybeans may flourish in this province but only around ten percent of those consumed in china are domestically grown the instruction to local farmers to grow more soybeans was a political priority but the reality is this china is a long way from ever being self-sufficient in soybeans which means it's going to be reliant on imports for years to come hi everybody i am a soybean in this cartoon video my china appears to be targeting u.s. farmers it's been airing on the international service of state t.v. and has a clear message in china can buy soybeans from other countries if that happens soybean farmers in the u.s. could take an even greater hit. and the soybean plays an essential role in the chinese diet used in cooking oil source tofu. as well as animal feed the government's now taking action to ensure there's no shortage of. the comedies
6:30 am
offering more subsidies to soaring farmers so i believe the government's been very supportive of me and the whole soybean industry in the past cheap soybean imports hurt chinese growers but the tariff war with the united states could secure their future adrian brown al-jazeera in a long jiang province northeast china well we just have results in mali's presidential elections where neither of the main candidates has secured more than fifty percent of the vote which means it will proceed to a second round the electoral commission has just announced president abraham boubacar kates at one forty one percent his rival somalia to say got seventeen percent while his opposition candidates have slammed the vote saying it was rigged assault med's mohamed vall he joins me on the phone now from bamako so mohamed we've got the results what happens now. yes what happens is that what has been
6:31 am
expected here basically is nobody actually has expected the president to buy a book. from the ground in the south on. the expectation is that now that your position have united its act just a day ago and decided to talk in one voice against the rigging and the manipulation that they say they accuse the government of didn't get action days expectations that some of them are pleased you know roughly behind it so might if you sit in the second seconds. which is on the twelve months if that happens on a mob scale and because he has ordered you to smoke mentum does the last several months. i mean some might if you think this could lead probably to a tight race than ever before between the sitting president and the opposition be
6:32 am
the body of course let's say thirty three no president somebody has ever been moved by you know. in the democratic vote by a opposition leader and i think if this happens this time it will be assessed unprecedented money and. it's unlikely by many analyses but i'm so because of this . situation that i have to discard the opposition it's very unpopular with the status quo many of them off of course the output of i divided about the leadership of iran and look up to a toddler in the last five years but as i said it's the opposition decides to support one man probably there will present a very formidable challenge to. bring to the. whole involving joining me on the line from family karama thankee. nicaragua's largest private sector organization is accusing the ruling party of engineering land seizures all over the
