Friday Face-Offs: “What You Know” — WINNER!!!

Here it is, the winning video:

Actually, before I reveal the winner, I’d like to acknowledge that this wasn’t the greatest Friday Face-Offs ever. I think the lesson I learned this week was: Just because you love a song, and it has the best beat with the coolest synthesizer sounds, doesn’t mean you’ll be able to find many great interpretations on youtube.

Frankly, I didn’t fully vet this song before picking it for Friday Face-Offs. I can’t help but feel I let you down . . . and I let the country down. Therefore I am resigning from the presidential race and urging all my supporters to buy fifty copies of my book instead. God bless you and God bless the United States of Buying Fifty Copies of My Book.

And now, without further ado, here’s the winning video:

“On a serious note, this is a very important year.
This is probably one of the most important years of my lifetime.
So if any of y’all ain’t accepted your responsibility and fulfilled your obligation of registering to vote, you need to do that.
Because us as young people, us as the hip-hop generation, we are the most influential genre of music there is.
When we move, the world moves.
So for us to not be politically involved, it’s gonna keep being laws passed that do not represent us.
If you don’t like it, then do something about it.
If you ain’t part of the solution, you a part of the motherfuckin’ problem.
And if you don’t goddamn get out there and vote, then shut your motherfuckin’ mouth and stop complaining.
Now let’s get back to the party –“

LOL, best youtube video title ever? “T.I. tells you to vote then drops ‘What You Know'”

Many can do the former, few can do the latter.
