Bilal is better known for his cameos on Common’s tracks than his consciously charged lyrics. However, on his sophomore album, Airtight’s Revenge, Bilal wrote the song “Robots” which expresses his belief that people have become homogenized and have stopped thinking for themselves. A release attached to the video states:
“To Bilal, people are becoming more like robots through the use of manipulative propaganda by corporate media . This video is his way of opening everyone’s eyes to the truth. As you watch “Robots” you’ll soon find yourself paying very close attention to what is really going on.”
This video is epic and is the brainchild of French director Mikael Colmbu.
