I can’t explain it any better than this (For more information: http://amnesty.org.uk/udhr):

International human rights day (December 10th) marks the anniversary of the United Nation’s historic ”Universal Declaration Of Human Rights” on 10 December 1948. The UDHR set out for the first time in a single document the fundamental rights to which everyone, everywhere is entitled – including the right to life, liberty, security, the freedoms of opinion, association and expression, and the right not to be subjected to torture or cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.

All proceeds go towards the organization’s human rights work.

Lupe Fiasco is one of the only rappers pushing the boundaries with music, which undoubtedly crosses over different genres. He takes on a bit of the alternative approach with this one, but the great thing about it is it’s featured on The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack. The only rapper to make the cut.

That should tell you something right there.

Watching videos like this makes me appreciate rock creativity so much more than hip-hop.
