Video: Reflection Eternal, "Ballad of the Black Gold"



These days, BP is putting their money where their mouth is—by apologizing on TV. For some of us, the oil spill luckily hasn't washed up on a street corner or tampered with our water supply, but the images of BP doing anything about it are saved for the evening news. Leave it to a brave spokesperson like Talib Kweli, to bring the harsh reality home in the video for "Ballad of the Black Gold." The globally-aware MC steps up to his soap box to sound off on the effect of oil dependency the way he boldly brought other controversial issues to light such as the 41 shots that killed Amadou Diallo. The hood has spoken.
