UK hip-hop icon speaks his mind...

Footage of an impassioned Skinnyman speech in favour of Jeremy Corbyn is going viral.

The general election takes place on December 12th - get out and vote! - with many musicians airing their opinions.

Blur's Alex James isn't in favour of Corbyn's leadership, something we reported HERE.

In the interests of balance, we're sharing a clip of Skinnyman's speech in favour of the North London politician.

Speaking during a Foreign Beggars live show, the UK hip-hop icon speaks of his connection to Jeremy Corbyn:

"I've known him all my life he's nothing but a good man! He was bailing me out of police stations when I was a little b***ard at 12 years old!"

Check it out now.

The full version of this speech will appear in a forthcoming documentary about the group Foreign Beggars.
