Talib Kweli and M1 (of Dead Prez), with the help of beatmakers Beatnick & K-Salaam, have issued a single, “Checkpoints: Ghetto To Gaza” about the connections between the oppression of African-Americans in the US and that of Palestinians. M1 sings:
A checkpoint, a checkpoint, everywhere a checkpoint
On a Palestinian shopowner:
Little did they know that I could be a supporter.
Gaza echoing to Vietnam:
They train the military to immolate shit that they did in the late 60s.
My heart goes out to Palestine
