Video posted of hip-hoppers Dead Prez touting R68. Very dated, as you'll notice by the presence of both Glenn Spagnuolo and now-R!68 Enemy Number 1 Adam Jung of Tent State. Video sucks, too. It was posted by something called Street Team 08. From their "about" page:
MTV, as part of its Emmy-winning 'Choose or Lose" campaign, has formed "Street Team '08": a specially recruited corps of 51 digital journalists - one from every state and Washington, D.C. - who will cover the national presidential and local races from a youth perspective throughout 2008. Armed with a laptop and video camera, and charged with uncovering the untold political stories that matter most to young people in their respective states, the one-of-a-kind press corps will submit weekly multi-media reports tailored for distribution online and via mobile phones.Kind of like the D-blog is doing, except without the $700,000 (or the "youth perspective").
The "Street Team '08" program is made possible with the help of a $700,000 News Challenge grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
