New video by producer duo Beatnick & K-Salaam featuring Talib Kweli and M1 of Dead Prez.

The track titled Checkpoints: Ghetto to Gaza connects the struggles of inner city youth in the United States facing racial profiling, police brutality and murder with Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in Palestine.

M1 has traveled with Existence is Resistance to Palestine twice, first to Gaza in 2009 then to the West Bank in 2010 which culminated with the creation of Hip Hip Is Bigger Than The Occupation, a documentary about the 10 day journey to Palestine.

Watch the video below:
