Talib & Hi-Tek Hit Hard with their New Song about Oil called ‘Ballad of the Black Gold’

Props to Talib & Hi-Tek . They been coming with it.. Most of us loved their song ‘Papers Please‘ which addressed Arizona’s harsh anti-immigration law SB 1070.

Their new album ‘Revolutions Per Minute‘ is dope.  One of the songs ‘Ballad of the Black Gold‘  deals with the issue of oil and our violent and imperialistic quest for it.. It’s is easily one of the best joints off the new album and should be heard by everyone concerned with the oil spill..I wish I had a copy of the performance they did of this song on Jimmy Fallon…They killed it with the Roots backing them up. It was up on Youtube, but Universal took it down..I guess you can peep it here..Go to chapter 5… Hopefully they keep it up for a minute

Here-Talib and Hi-Tek  they explain the meaning behind the song
