HuffPost Video Premiere: Reflection Eternal's "Ballad Of The Black Gold"

What's Your Reaction:

Recently, a powerful fan-made video was made of Reflection Eternal's track, "Ballad Of The Black Gold." In fact, the group's record label believed that the fan video was so moving that it decided to endorse the clip.

Reflection Eternal (rapper Talib Kweli and producer Hi-Tek) created the piece to raise awareness of dubious oil drilling in Africa, a global concern considering the recent BP Gulf disaster. Here is HuffPost's premiere of the video as well as a video commentary.
