Throwback Thursday: Common “The Corner”

Taking it back 10 years to one of coldest joints of 2005. 10 years before Lonnie Rashid Lynn aka Common, would win an Oscar for this musical contribution to Selma, he dropped a crazy album in the form of BE. Now what really made me chose this as the throwback choice is the 1968 film Right On starring the Original Last Poets that I had to privilege to watch after the short film that I wrote was shown at the Reel Black event a few days ago. I feel like we truly underestimate the power of our words.
