“I gotta split this honey bun in four ways…No heat because the gas is off, it’s goin on four days…depression in the corridor spreads to the doorway…no power in my tongue, nobody cares about what the poor say…”
Talib Kweli & 9th Wonder have brought together a great collective for the song & video These Waters from the album Indie 500. The visuals feature CITMI favorite K. Valentine along with Chris Rob, NIKO IS, Jessica Care Moore. The song is about the struggle in the hood to be heard & cope. From Chicago to New York many have to deal with poverty. This is a tribute & encouragement to those going through it. It goes, “Spent a long time…searching for the heart that would fit inside…I can feel the freedom in me…I can make it to the other side…”.
