Video: Pharoahe Monch - Clap (One Day)

Pharoahe Monch recently dropped "Clap (One Day)" as an ode to the national day to end police brutality which was 2 days ago and now he also has the video for this extremely thoughtful joint..

Monch had these comments:

Instead of protect and serve, police often escalate situations, as with the cases of Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, or Aiyana Stanley Jones, and hundreds more who fell victim to police violence. I wrote this song to express my frustration, as well as raise the question of how our communities can create safety and prevent violence, with out relying on police.”

Good shit...

In case you were wondering, Monch's new album "W.A.R. (We Are Renegades)" is scheduled to drop 1st quarter of 2011 sometime on Duckdown Records ...I know I'mma be keepin tabs on it.
