Beatnick x K-Salaam – “Checkpoints: Ghetto To Gaza” feat. Talib Kweli x M1 (Of Dead Prez) [Video]

A checkpoint, a checkpoint, everywhere a checkpoint…

The visuals for “Checkpoints” probably bring to light what most of us probably know (a reality of which we are informed or numbed enough to no longer fear): a ghetto is a ghetto. And the ghetto (be it in yesteryear Germany; or today’s Gaza or Ferguson) is where the real casualties of war take place. Where we are being killed in government sanctioned ways… oppressive poverty, lacking nutrition and education, youth roaming the streets… unprotected from danger… from those meant to protect and serve… either the government chooses to do something, or chooses NOT to do something, about what’s going on in the ghetto (here or there, now or then; no difference).

Who would speak truth on a track with themes like that? Guess. A Beatnick & K-Salaam track. Talib Kweli and M1 added on. C’mon! Single out on iTunes now. Video above. Full-length on the way.

Watch to the end.

Dead Prez – “No Way As The Way” (Video)

Official music video for “No Way As The Way” from the Dead Prez (M1 and Stic.Man) release “Information Age Deluxe.” Beautiful sentiments on life and spirituality expressed in the song (brought to life in the video). Check out what Stic.Man had to say about its conceptualization:

‘The song “No Way As The Way,” that title comes from my martial arts practices. Jeet Kune Do is one of the arts that I’ve had the chance to practice. Jeet Kune Do was created by Bruce Lee. It’s an approach to martial arts that says that having no way as the way, is the way. To make it simple: not being locked into any particular way as the only way to get something done, in terms of your fighting.

That spills over into the philosophy of life in terms of having no set way, no rigid position that you’re trying to hold, but being adaptable and fluid and flowing. Long story short, that martial arts practice has inspired my thinking a lot. When we decided to write a song on “Information Age” about spirituality and religion, it was so fitting.’

Dead Prez – ‘The Beauty Within’ (Video)

Dead Prez flipped B.O.B.’s ‘Nothing On You’ for their Revolutionary But Gangsta Grillz mixtape fairly well. I’ve given this particular song some run on the radio show & now more than a year later Dead Prez drops a new  video for this joint. I’m not mad at artists dropping videos for mixtape or album tracks because it often breathes new life into a project. I’m just not sure about artists waiting years to drop a video for good album tracks. I guess better late than never though…

I’ve been slippin’ & the summer is coming so I need to trim & cut this muscle up thoroughly. Time to get the focus back after watching this vid…..

REWIND: Dead Prez – “Be Healthy / Malcolm, Garvey, Huey” (Video)


With the recent passing of Guru, and the death of J Dilla, Kool Herc is counting on the blessing of Hip Hop followers to donate to help his fight for life. We need to take better care of our selves and our love ones. A healthy diet and exercise should be the staple in our lives but, instead there is sickness. Let’s find a way to change for the better. Also, it is still Black History Month so… Dead Prez said it best……”Malcolm, Garvey, Huey” – Frank Yerby
