Common Is For The Children.

Common talks to a classroom full of kids in Augusta, Georgia and preaches the importance of staying in school, believing in your dreams, and being true to yourself. He also kicks a verse from the very first song he every wrote, back when he was 12. I can't believe he remembers the lyrics. I don't even remember what I did last week.

But for real, this is a beautiful thing. I'm glad artists like Common are trying to help the youth because in all honesty, sometimes kids will look up more to rappers than their teachers. Too many rappers spread the wrong message. You know how you are.
