Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli & DJ Hi-Tek) - "Africa Dream"

It's not the best track from the critically acclaimed duo, but the last line of the main verse on this song off of their 2000 debut Train of Thought always strikes me as quite profound:

These cats drink champagne and toast to death and pain,
Like slaves on a ship talking about who got the flyest chain.

I'll let you think on that for a minute.  Reflection Eternal's sophomore album, Revolutions Per Minute, is scheduled to be released on May 18th.

Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
