"Us Placers" by Lupe, Kanye & Pharrell (CRS)
Awesome video for the song "Us Placers" by CRS (Child Rebel Soldier), directed by va$htie. An interesting fact is that the video is not the official one for the song. The artists had nothing to do with this video, instead child versions of each artist were used. Also, the video was made on a zero budget using friends, borrowed clothes and props.
CRS is a super-group comprising of: Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West and Pharrell. The song includes Thom Yorke of Radiohead as well. Hopefully, this won't be last we will hear of CRS, as nothing further has emerged. This is one of the hottest tracks out there lately that I've heard. The song was voted #43 on Rolling Stone magazine's best songs of 2007.
