Talib Kweli talks ‘Black Gold’


     

    Reflection Eternal is putting the oil industry on blast in the “Ballad of Black Gold.”
     
    Tensions and public outcry surrounding the oil spill in the gulf have boiled over for Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek. Now the two are speaking up on their views about the conditions in the oil industry that allowed such a catastrophe to happen.


     
    The video for “The Ballad of Black Gold” is rich with symbolic imagery. The theme that popped up the most, to us, is how people’s hands were covered in oil, likening it to blood.
