MUSIC VIDEO: CLAP (One Day) by Pharoahe Monche

Pharoahe Monch gives us a reason to think tonight.

Stunningly shot in Brooklyn, New York it addresses gun violence and the abuse of police power like never before seen. This is more than the usual "fight the power" fare, it is multi layered and musically brilliant as…
