Malcolm X by Stormshadowz ft. Professor A.L.I.

This song dedicated to the late Malcolm X by the underground rap group Stormshadowz (comprised of Young Skitz/Malik and Professor A.L.I.) also features the now late grandson of Malcolm X, Malcolm Shabazz, from his first visit to the Bay Area. The late Malcolm Shabazz helped heavily promote this song and this album and helped lay the groundwork for Professor A.L.I.’s breakout solo career.

The video was directed and shot by Jessie Rosenberg and won several film festival categories in music video. It also features live footage caught by Jessie from the Oscar Grant protests in Oakland and the now dismantled Oscar Grant mural in downtown Oakland.
