Rapping to the beat of Obama victory in Caribbean

Radio stations across the Caribbean are tuning into American politics, broadcasting rapper and reggae songs celebrating Barack Obama's victory.
"Black Man Redemption" by Rapper Tony Rebel; "Yes We Can" by Reggae singer Cocoa Tea; and "The Obama Song" by rapper Tyrical are dominating the airwaves in Jamaica.
"Barack the Magnificent," a creation of Calypso legend Mighty Sparrow, is enchanting Trinidadians, and Antiguans are singing along with "Barack We Love You," by native calypso singer King Short Shirt.
Cocoa Tea has said his songs are not about color or race, but about change.
Obama is to be sworn into office next Tuesday.
