The Roots feat. Bilal – It Ain’t Fair [Audio]

Posted on July 27, 2017

The Roots and Bilal team up for a new song titled "It Ain’t Fair". Taken from the "Detroit" movie soundtrack.

"This song is the slow burning fire inside all of our souls," Roots drummer Questlove tells Rolling Stone. "Watching the movie [Detroit] clearly shows that life in 1967 isn't that much different in 2017 or 1897 for that matter. We wanted to hit many a bird with one stone: Humanize the pain, confusion and sadness. But also express the overdue anger. Not only to the powers that be but also to those on the sideline that can afford to turn the other way because it doesn't effect them at the moment."
