One Question

What kind of Revolution is going on over at MTV Studios?

Lupe Fiasco was all over MTV last week, and now Dr. Cornel West is the Artist of the Week???

I don't know whats going on, but I like it. Maybe because it is "Black History Month"

Update: Okay now that I went to MTV and checked for the Artist of the Week, it is because its Black History Month.

"In honor of Black History Month, we’re honoring one of the foremost leaders and thinkers in Black America today: Dr. Cornel West.

Dr. Cornel West is an Ivy League-educated professor of religion and African-American studies at Princeton University. A renown, controversial philosopher, orator, scholar and activist, Dr. West has written close to 20 profoundly influential books on the topics of race, politics, culture and religion, including the best-selling book, Race Matters."

The only thing i didn't like is that they were using Cornel West to promote stuff like MTV Real World/Road Rules Challenge. I wasn't sure how i felt about that haha.
