Didn’t think we would actually get a video for this song, but here we are. *Spoiler alert*..there’s a soundbite from Malcolm X that coincides with his death today. The video was directed by Yasiin Bey & Set Free, edited by Andre Cole and “produced by Yasiin Bey, Set Free and Andre Cole for Fellowship Mission”.
