This song is timeless and will forever be relevant, unfortunatel y even today with the events in Baltimore! Maybe one day as the song pleads, "black ppl will be free" and not viewed as death threats to police. Why can a white man ARMED, walk in a movie theater and shoot innocent ppl and simply get apprehended my police...but a black man who owes child support, unarmed get his leg damn near broken, his spine severed and die due to these injuries sustained while in police custody. Something ain't r

I LOOOOOOOOOOO V E THIS SONG!!!! I'm SOOO GLAD it was created because it is the TRUE essence of what it's like being Black! In this song Mos Def talks about the struggles and trials of Blacks in a society that degrades and mocks US as a culture! My FAVORITE part is ALL BLACK PEOPLE TO BE FREE, TO BE FREE... AND BLACK PEOPLE UNITE, LET'S ALL GET DOWN! This song describes the essence of what Blacks see and feel in society each and everyday! Such a deep song! I can analyze this song FOREVER!
