'Feel the heat on the streets'

Rap group Wu-tang Clan star Method Man has invited US presidential hopeful Barack Obama to join him on the streets of Compton in Los Angeles.

The rapper is a big fan of the Democrat but he insists no new president should be allowed to lead the country without visiting the toughest areas of America.

He says, "My people never feel the effects of who changes the world or who's in office because it never trickles down that low on the scale.

"We don't feel the president's power down there [in Compton], we just feel the poverty. Blessings to Obama and the whole Obama click. Hopefully he'll bring his ass to Compton to see what it is.

"Somebody told me, 'Why would he go there; that's dangerous.' That's why he should go!" - Wenn
