Chuck D, DMC take part in anti-war concert
Chuck D and DMC were among the artists who took part in Monday night's "Bring 'Em Home Now!" concert at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. Neither took the stage to drop a rhyme at the anti-war event, but "Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan did: "Occupation is not liberation, it's bullsh--, for profit, let's stop it!" Maybe they should have let the hip-hop veterans perform, but instead, DMC helped unveil a new, legal anti-war postage stamp and Chuck used the mic to deliver a speech ripping President Bush for "deluding the citizens with weapons of mass distraction." Proceeds from the show, which also featured Moby, Susan Sarandon and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe and drew an estimated 3,000 people, will go to groups such as Sheehan's Gold Star Families for Peace and Veterans Against the War. Meanwhile, Chuck's partner is rhyme had the "Best Week Ever" for VH1. The finale for Flavor Flav's reality show attracted 5.88 million viewers. Those who tuned in saw Flav pick "Hoopz" Nikki Alexander and made the final episode of "Flavor of Love" VH1's top-rated show of all-time. It was second behind "The Sopranos" among the top cable shows for the week. Latest news...
