Awesome that @ThirdManRecords pressed up ltd edition red vinyl copies of #ItAintFair the new explosive collaboration of @TheRoots & @BILALmusic for the #DETROITmovie soundtrack.

Hope you guys listen to this song and enjoy it. It was a hard song to make (from an approach standpoint: how to document a slow burning rage from quiet to anger in 6 mins & an execution standpoint: 8 tracks w no overdubs of 19 musicians & 2 fiery vocalists on analogue equipment and not to mention keeping Bilal from losing his voice yet giving him permission to lose his mind at the end)

This might be my favorite song we've done. 
Hope you like it.
