we interrupt this 50 mania...

To direct your attention to one of the most culturally important rap records hitting air waves and video channels right now...

Common's "The Corner" featuring The Last Poets and Produced by Kanye West - West directed the video too

This is hip-hop

If nothing else, perhaps those on the fringes can now better understand why heads got a love for the corner - and it's not just about selling drugs - it's the meeting place - where cats spit fire - where church services are held - where communities take action - the corner has deep history - and perhaps now it won't be misunderstood

At least we've got a glimpse at Rasheed's Lynn's next classic to be overlooked by the system. Geffen got the creative hip-hop on lock, from Common, to The Roots, to Talib Kweli, to Mos Def

go see what funkdigi has to say about and cop that link to the video
