The phrase on the Armenian Genocide promoted in the song by Derek Barbosa, who is known as the rapper Chino XL, appears in the top five of the week in the U.S. charts, occupying the third place. The American rapper wrote the following phrase `Got a love for hip-hop that could never be lost/Even if it ignores me like the media ignored slavery and Armenian holocaust' in his song Eye (Stomp), TheGrio.com reports. `We especially appreciated the note of the early twentieth century Armenian genocide, a terrible and not-officially-acknowledged incident that the U.S. power structure only ever sees fit to bring up when it's trying to score political points against Turkey,' TheGrio.com claimed.
