Rolling Stone - The Chris Rock 25

Nearly every moment when Chris Rock isn't onstage, he's listening to music. If he didn't happen to be one of the world's best comedians, he would have made an excellent music critic: He's been a hard-core hip-hop fan sinces the Eighties, and his 1993 satire of the rap industry, CB4, is still a cult favorite. So, in the interest of helping Rock develop a fallback career, we asked him to name his top twenty-five hip-hop albums. Check out the Favorites section for the full list.

CGI/MTV giving event

Former president Bill Clinton played Harlem's legendary Apollo Theater last night, but he wasn't tooting his saxophone.

Clinton joined music stars Bono, Shakira and Alicia Keyes and
comedian Chris Rock for a roundtable discussion on youth activism.

"You have to be a citizen student, a giver," Clinton told the younger
members of the audience as he announced the Clinton Global
Initiative's first youth summit, called CGI U, planned for next year
at Tulane University in New Orleans.

Like the three-day initiative's philanthropic summit last week, the
college version aims to bring together attendees to tackle global
issues such as sustainable development and poverty.

"All my life, I've wanted to play the Apollo, but they only invited
me to amateur night, and I don't want to get hooked offstage," Clinton joked.

But he turned serious, adding, "We're here because young people have more power to change the world now, more than in the past."

Rock said, "College has been about girls gone wild in the '90s, but
it should be about people gone wild helping other people."

The evening included several performances, including Wyclef Jean
singing, "Vote for Me, Wyclef for President."

The special will air on MTV at 8pm Friday, October 12

YOUTH ACTIVISM DISCUSSION AND CONCERT

MTV AND CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE TO HOST BONO, CHRIS ROCK, ALICIA KEYS AND SHAKIRA FOR YOUTH ACTIVISM
DISCUSSION AND CONCERT

"Giving - Live at the Apollo" Scheduled for September 29 at the Historic Apollo Theater

NEW YORK, NY – September 21, 2007 – MTV and the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) will host a roundtable discussion on the state of affairs of youth activism later this month in New York City, bringing together a panel of icons and change makers that will include President Clinton, Bono, Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, Shakira, and Christina Norman, President of MTV. As part of the special event, "CGI and MTV present: Giving – Live at the Apollo," each individual will discuss their efforts to effect change on pressing social issues and invite young people to partner with them on a new initiative – designed to improve communities nationwide and make a difference in the lives of people living in the poorest places on the planet.

The conversation will take place on September 29th at Harlem's historic Apollo Theatre and be moderated by MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway. "Giving – Live at the Apollo" will also showcase show-stopping live performances from Alicia Keys and Shakira. The discussion and concert will be webcast live on Think.MTV.com, U2.com, ONE.org and keepachildalive.org, with a special on the day's events to be later broadcast on MTV, mtvU and MTV Tr?s.

The Clinton Global Initiative, a nonpartisan project of the Clinton Foundation, is a three-day annual conference that seeks to find innovative solutions to some of the world's most pressing challenges. CGI and MTV are committed to empowering young people with the tools to play an important role in addressing the challenges we face through community service and youth activism.

Other proud sponsors of this event include ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History, a coalition of more than 2.4 million Americans banded together to end to extreme global poverty and preventable disease; "Keep a Child Alive," which provides life-saving AIDS medicines directly to children and families with HIV/AIDS in Africa; and ALAS ("Wings" - fundacionalas.org), a coalition of artists, intellectuals and entrepreneurs dedicated to improving the health and education of Latin American children.

"CGI and MTV present: Giving – Live at the Apollo" represents an important milestone for thinkMTV, the umbrella for MTV's on-air, off-air and online pro-social campaigns that engage, educate and encourage young people to take action on some of the biggest challenges facing their generation. The backbone for MTV's pro-social efforts is Think.MTV.com, a new online community where young people, their friends and some of the biggest names in pop culture come together to effect positive social change.

The Think Community is dynamic, multimedia-driven and enables youth to easily learn more about the issues that matter to them most, share their opinions – via uploaded online videos, podcasts and blogs – and connect with others to make a difference. The site is one of the only to reward members for positive actions taken online or off, serving up chances to hang out with socially conscious celebs, access to exclusive MTV events, exposure on MTV and other national media outlets, as well as grants, scholarships and more. Think.MTV.com was built with the help of financial support and expertise from founding partners the Case Foundation, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Goldhirsh Foundation and MCJ Amelior Foundation.
