In this song, we’ll take you back to the time of Rockefeller, Morgan, Carnegie and Pulitzer. The robber barons of the Gilded Age played Monopoly with their own set of rules. Let’s just say they collected more than $200 when they passed Go. The song will cover legislation that attempted to limit the growth of their trusts, and a laissez-faire economy that demanded that Congress let them be. It’s a Gilded Age hip-hop song featuring four of the biggest industrial tycoons.
