Celebrities have always played a key role in our communities when it comes to addressing the issues that face us. When hip-hop came on the scene, that didn't change at all. As Chuck D from Public Enemy says, hip hop artists are the "'hood's CNN" - starting back in the day with songs like Grand Master Flash's "The Message".
Today, many of hip-hop's biggest stars are carrying on this tradition by using their voice to call for an inclusive green economy.
Looking at creating jobs in our communities, educating our peers about the role they can play in protecting the environment, highlighting specific issues like water - hip-hop artists are taking a stand.
But which ones? We put together the video below featuring a number of the celebrities and hip-hop acts that have helped spread the message about the green economy.
So here's the contest. Go to our Facebook wall, and try to identify all of the artists and celebrities in the video above. The first person to ID all of them wins an iPod Shuffle. Everyone else who gets them all correct will be entered into a pool to win a $25 iTunes gift card. But here's the catch - entries must be received by 12 a.m. Pacific tonight.
Many hip hop artists you hear might focus on the lavish life that comes with money and fame (like iPod Shuffles!), but more and more are spreading a message of action, sustainability and hope. That's a message the world needs.
