He ain't Wyclef, and that's a good thing

Given the way in which so many artists' take on Haiti seem to have been engulfed into the Kipling-esque "We Are the World" remake, it is amazingly refreshing to see an emcee who isn't swallowing the propaganda. Binh over at Prisoner of Starvation turned me onto this vid. I already thought Joell Ortiz was one of the most underrated and honest players in the game, but his song "Exhibit H" reveals how sharp he really is. Folks looking for encouragement in the seemingly unabated sea of "US as liberator" should definitely prick up their ears for this one.
