Last month, 9th Wonder and Talib Kweli -- under the pseudonym Indie 500 -- were graciously joined by West Coasters Problem and Bad Lucc. Today, they're sharing the powerful visuals from their latest track, ''Which Side Are You On'', featuring another pair of guests in Tef Poe and Kendra Ross. Furthermore, Kweli revealed the concept behind ''Which Side Are You On'', as well as it's moving video. Kweli says the song ''pays homage to those murdered by the police over the past year and those who have taken a stand'' and that the video -- which contains footage from the Ferguson Rocks and Ferguson Is Everywhere fundraiser -- features Tom Morello, Bun B, Common, Outernational, Cornel West, Pharoahe Monch, Jasiri X, M-1 of dead prez and K'Valentine all of whom ''participated in the August concerts''. You may hit the play button on ''Which Side Are You On'' after the jump.
Super-producer 9th Wonder and all-around stand-up emcee Talib Kweli, better known as Indie 500, are finally sharing the first offering from their collaborative project in "Pay Ya Dues," which features a pair of West Coast rappers, Problem and Bad Lucc. No word as to when their highly-anticipated debut project will drop, but alls we know is "Pay Ya Dues" is the jam and the production, handled by The Soul Council's Eric G, is dope as hell. Go ahead and peep "Pay Ya Dues" after the jump.
The South links up on David Banner's "My Uzi." Banner and Big K.R.I.T. team up to take on an old Banner cut ("Suicide Doors" featuring the legendary UGK) which is convenient given the Southern tinged themes and obviously the two rappers on the track. The chorus even samples Pimp C's "My uzi weight a ton" line from the OG track. Listen after the jump.
Cannibal Ox will do damage overseas soon, get a load of the European tour dates after the jump. There's also merch!
Banner you are SOO RIGHT! Until we can sign checks in the south, we're not making any real money. I'm bias to Memphis because that's my city. I was born here, I traveled around the world but came back. I own a record label now called Overwater Entertainment. My vision for us is to be the modern day Stax as an independent. I'm not saying that we will never take advantage of what a major has to offer us but we WILL have the option to do it ourselves and not be dependent on another person's agenda for our success. Check us out at http://www.overwaterent.com . You'll hear about us soon enough. Trust me.
