I spit a rap to set the facts straight on #Medicaid and so-called work requirements in #Arkansas over a classic Notorious BIG track. #GAMEOFTHRONES reference for fun, too. (Tweet posted in my individual capacity on my own time). pic.twitter.com/00fLnArthR

Here’s Kevin De Liban, a lawyer with Legal Aid of Arkansas, making the case for Medicaid and why Arkansas’s work reporting rule is unfair — in rhyme. De Liban has a serious rap side gig. From his artist bio on his website:
“You rap?” The suit-and-tie standard conceals a ferocious lyricist steeped in the tradition of superior MC’ing, surprising all listeners with heartfelt stories, incisive politics, reflective meditation, and good old smack-a-rapper slick-talk. Nobody expects this from someone dressed for the courtroom.
