Jenifer Lewis is a national treasure and if you've checked out her Instagram account recently you may have come across one of the best videos of all time.
In a video posted about a week ago, Lewis urges her fans to got out and vote before launching into a hilarious song accompanied by an all-star choir. This isn't the first time Lewis has declared that ain't nobody messing with her in these streets.

Um, can Black-ish give Jenifer Lewis her own musical special, so we can witness Grandma Ruby performing "In These Streets"?
