So, there has been a bit of an uproar over Common's invitation to appear at the White House tonight. You can stream it live here, if you are interested.

I'm not going to offer a rebuttal to the critics of the President and First Lady, who are saying that Common is a "vile rapper" who should be disinvited. Instead, I'm going to let you see hear for yourself...

Exhibit A: "The People"

Exhibit B: "The Light"

Exhibit C: "I Used To Love H.E.R."
