Common Drops The Official Video For "This War We Fight" - A Poem Penned For The Veterans Day Celebration At The White House.

Common pays tribute to the fallen and all those left standing with the official video for “This War We Fight” – a poem written for this year’s Veterans Day celebration at the White House. The somber black & white clip directed by Sean Glover is a mash of light and shadow scored by the Puddle Of Infinity track “Opening Sea Morning.” Common stares out into the daylight from the confines of a dark room, where he delivers his “salute to those in fatigues and boots” and the families of those troops. Check the footage below to watch the video for “This War We Fight.” Purchase the Nobody’s Smiling LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for more from Common.
