The Mos Def joint w/ the Denali was hot. His joint with Converse was hot too. I respect what Erykah does for the community, but the comercial came off madd fake!

I applaud sister Erykah's efforts, but that piece could've been a lot better. It came off very cheesy, as if it was a skit on a comedy sketch show or something.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

right, it could have been realer using the pics of her posting up in the caddy in mama's gun cd photos or footage of her actin like she's rolling and singing about rolling in a cadillac from concert footage but this is capitalism, gotta keep in un(real) and look like a community public service announcement.

I admit she looks like somebody's mama there, but I suppose that's the community-builder image she has to portray. I ain't mad at the commercial though !
