Politically Relevant Rap Video of the Day: Reflection Eternal (Kweli + Hi-Tek) - "Ballad of the Black Gold"




In my opinion this is the most impressive joint on Hi-Tek and Talib Kweli's recently released Revolutions Per Minute (REVIEW HERE). Glad to see they gave it the proper treatment in the wake of the BP oil spill (not to mention the many oil-driven conflicts and quagmires that the United States is currently tangled up in). Kweli might not be the same sort of revolutionary that he once was, but at least he still finds room for cuts like this on his projects. Content aside, too, this is one hell of a banger.
