Over at the Decaying Skeleton Formerly Known As XXL Blogs, Jackpot (or whoever is writing those bullshit blog posts these days) was reporting that Geffen Records were attempting to squash the promotion for Common's new video, "Annoucement", because it was deemed career suicide for Mr. Lynn. Apparently, it did not feature enough wanton ignorance (or in Common's case granola infused aphorisms) for them to promote it.
I posted the video above and it's actually pretty cool. It's much better than the steaming pile of bat guano that "Universal Mind Control" was when it was leaked early this year. For the record, I'm pretty much guaranteeing that "Invincible Summer" (What a stupid name, by the way. Did you know that there is k.d. effin' lang album called "Invincible Summer?" k.d. lang... Take with that what you will...) is going to suck because Pharell is heavily involved but this video is kind of dope.
