Common launched a new HIV/AIDS awareness campaign yesterday on MTV’s TRL. He is hosting a contest that will give one lucky winner the chance for Common to spit their rhyme in a Public Service Announcement. This will be done for National HIV Testing Day, which is June 27th. “It’s important to know your status by getting tested because HIV/AIDS is taking a lot of lives in our community and around the world,” Common said. “I had an uncle succumb to HIV, so I’ve personally felt the impact of the disease. Your lyrics can really have an affect on people’s lives and I’ve seen it happen.”So if you think you have the skills then write your best rhyme and submit it to the contest. The one-minute PSA will air on MTV2 and mtvU, MTV’s college network.
