VIDEO: The Roots feat John Legend – The Fire
by Winston "Stone" Ford
When I saw the trailer for this vid I know that The Roots and Rik Cordero were onto something special. Check the full video and see for yourself.
“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. – Rik
