This video should be broadcast loud and frequently across the country, in every barbershop, club, salon, office park, town hall, and anywhere else people gather. It’s the greatest hip hop video of all time, as far as I’m concerned, which may be why it’s blowing up on BET’s video charts.
Please don’t just play the video. Check out the artist, Bomani “D’Mite” Armah. He’s probably got the most appropriate domain name ever in notarapper.com. He’s a youth counselor, poet and more. We’ve had some interesting comments over the past week about hip hop, criticism of black folks, etc. Bomani brings a whole nother element to the discussion.
Warning, language is not safe for work, so put on some headphones or wait till you get home.
