Beatnick & K-Salaam Team With Talib Kweli And M-1 In The Official Video For "Checkpoints" Directed By Joe Pacheco.

Beatnick & K-Salaam team with Talib Kweli and M1 of dead prez in the official video for “Checkpoints: Ghetto To Gaza” from their forthcoming album. The track is the first single from the project, which boasts features from Joell Ortiz, Bun B, Fashawn, Blu and Tech N9ne. The thought-provoking track from the acclaimed production duo gets an equally powerful interpretation in the clip directed by Joe Pacheco and inspired by the ongoing and eerily similar conflicts in Ferguson, Missouri and the Gaza strip. M1 and Kweli shed light on the similarities between people living in U.S. ghettos and those being oppressed in Gaza. The clip also highlights the lack of proper nutrition and cops clocking people of color in the hood. Check the footage below to watch the official video for “Checkpoints: Ghetto To Gaza.” Scroll down to check out the exclusive behind-the-scenes commentary from the shoot. Purchase the single via iTunes. Stay tuned for more from Beatnick & K-Salaam.
