There are two joints I can think of that would make it worth purchasing a CD of the songs performed by his musical guests: the Wyclef song "If I Was President", and Talib Kwali & Mos Def (as Black Star?) doing "What's Beef". That shit is ill.

he's running some of his "best of" eps tonite, and that was one of the segments shown. Very moving, made even more so by Wyclef's beautiful voice. I found a download of the song ripped from the show, but it is lacking in audio quality. Check the URL!!

(chorus)
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If I was president

An old man told me, instead of spending billions on the war,
we can use some of that money, in the ghetto.
I know some so poor, when it rains that's when they shower,
screaming "fight the power".
That's when the vulture devoured

(chorus)
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If I was president...
If I was president...
If I was president

But the radio won't play this.
They call this rebel music.
How can you refuse it, children of moses?

(chorus)
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If i was president

Tell the children the truth, the truth.
Christopher Columbus didn't discover America.
Tell them the truth.
The truth
YEAH! Tell them about Marcus Garvey.
The truth YEAH! The truth.
Tell them about Martin Luther King.
Tell them the truth.
The Truth.
Tell them about JFK

If I was President
(chorus)
If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

If I was president...
If I was president
