Hip-hop the vote

Vanderbilt is hosting a free discussion Thursday on hip-hop and the election, including remarks from M-1 of the hip-hop duo dead prez (their own Web site prominently features their middle fingers, so I'll leave you to go find it). Having listened to a little of their stuff right now (again, you'll have to find it for yourself on YouTube) the group appears to have pretty heavy socialist leanings, so it might be interesting to hear M-1's take on the candidates, if only because it appears McCain and Obama aren't going to please him.

Other guests include authors Bakari Kitwana, Adam Mansbach, Vijay Prashad, Maya Rockeymoore and community organizer Angela Woodson. The event starts at 6 p.m. in the multipurpose room of The Commons.
