The Roots ft. Bilal – It Ain’t Fair

The Roots and Bilal contributed this sprawling, potent new track “It Ain’t Fair” to the soundtrack to the new film Detroit starring John Boyega. The song, which is dominated by Bilal’s vocals, clocks in at over 6 minutes, and features a couple of particularly fiery Black Thought verses. It touches on police brutality and the explosive racial issues that converged to spur the 1967 Detroit Riots covered in the film.
