My Boy Derrick Ashong Holds It DOWN For Obama and Intelligence

What a great video! Derrick and I went to college together and have worked on mad projects including the Sweet Mother Tour.

He's a member of the award-winning band Soulfege, and clearly knows how to handle himself on camera. The interviewer clearly started off thinking he was gonna catch some uneducated Barack supported who connected only because of "emotion," but Derrick made that interviewer look like a fool and all of us look good. He got waaaaay beyond the talking points and ultimately earned the respect of the interviewer.

Oh, and Derrick lives in California, so he was holding it down for black voters out there at least :)

Thanks to JJP commenter jstele for pointing this out. Enjoy.





Update: a followup video from Derrick explaining how the interview went down, among other things.
