Barack and the Kidz

If you were born before 1985, when you hear the phrase "Kids in the Hall," you probably think of the semi-popular 80's T.V. show. So last week when we got a press release about Kidz in the Hall, we just thought some wacky kids just couldn't spell.
We were wrong! Kidz in the Hall is a local rap group who were lucky enough to have their song "Work to Do" chosen as a theme song for the Barack Obama campaign. The song, a self-proclaimed anthem that contains a philosophy about how to approach life in general, is a feel good ditty about how we can all make a change for the better, complete with a few shout outs to the junior Senator himself. MC Naledge, a member of the group, says Obama "embodies everything that is promising for the future of our nation and represents the hope I sought to speak on in the song."
