WOW! This song is HUGE! This video is HUGE! The Roots are THE best band in hip hop and beyond. This incredible video/single comes off their How I Got Over LP. You have got to watch this video. Right now!
However, before you do, I must warn you, it is a wee bit intense. Oh and read this description:
“The Fire” chronicles a post-apocalyptic death march set in 1945 during the final stages of World War II in Europe. After a cataclysmic event renders the war futile, a paramilitary splinter group — led by a Kurtz-like figure known as The Commodore — forces the transfer of young men who will be used as labor…and food. The last survivor of the march receives a mysterious White Box which holds the key to survival.
