This wouldn’t be the first time, but check out what John Stewart has to say on the recent blowup surrounding Common coming to the White House.
Rapper Common at the White House, regardless of the allegations he was asked not to come:
Another banger: Missy Elliot – Hot Boyz
What other song could be hotter?
Pharoahe Monch, Mos Def, Nate Dogg – Oh No
A classic from my hey day.
This guy’s intro shouting out to Tupac and other American’s rappers is funny, too.
I am still slippin’ with this.
Kid Cudi ft. Kanye West – Erase Me
Kanye West, Common, Big Sean, Pusha T, DJ Premier.

NPR provides here a full stream of the new album between John Legend and the Roots. It sounds awesome!
New single by Kanye West titled Power.
I am looking forward to buying it sometime soon:
The Roots’ experimental adventurousness has earned them love from rock critics, they are a hip-hop band at the core, and the most effective collaborations on How I Got Over are with the rap and R&B names that might be new to some listeners. The sieze-the-moment groover “Now Or Never” has a tremendous showing from Phonte, an MC from Durham, NC crew Little Brother, and “Web 20/20” spotlights Peddi Peddi from Philly underground group State Property.
How I Got Over could be how The Roots themselves got over the brooding lyrical frustration of Rising Down and Game Theory, how they got over the disappointments of a rap game that rewards instant celebrity rather than artistic longevity. It’s about how they got their groove back and proved they remain catchy, inspiring and sonically relevant, two decades and some into their career.
Beyond all of the tracks on this album that you have heard at least 400 times, the whole CD is off the chain!
