I'm not usually a fan of hiphop at all, but this sends shivers down my spine.

We know the battle ahead will be long
but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way,
nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change...

I'll have to check out the mix-tape!

Guess who is on the cover of one of my favorite magazines?!


I bought it last night when I saw him on the cover. He wrote a letter to the readers.

I'm really surprised to not see a track by Common on the tape. When I saw his show a couple of weeks ago he gave a big "shout out" to Obama. It was pretty cool because he got a huge response to this (from an audience of Canadians!). He has a song called "Yes we Can" (inspired by Obama's speech) on his new album. You can see the video here:
