MC Lyte Makes The Perfect Visual For Her Latest Common Collabo (Video)
Following last month’s “Dear John,” MC Lyte & Common’s latest collaboration gets a narrative video. The song about men taking on a greater role in their families amidst the stressful and demanding circumstances gets a video that highlights fatherhood, especially Black fatherhood, including some celebrity cameos.
This concept is executed in the medium beautifully, while Lyte and Comm’ urge us all to take greater ownership and interest in the future.
The single reportedly serves is the anthem for #EducateOURMen, which is the signature scholarship initiative of MC Lyte’s Hip Hop Sisters Foundation, which has presented two $100,000 university scholarships during the Soul Train Music Awards Red Carpet Pre-Show each year since the organization’s founding. This year, the foundation will present dozens of scholarships ear-marked to send men of color to HBCU’s. Russell Simmons, Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Faith Evans are just of the few celebrities who support the foundation’s movement.
