"Harper's new album, Call It What It Is — his first with the Innocent Criminals, the band he formed in the early '90s, in nine years — offers its share of pointed commentary. Harper has had personal experience with racial profiling: 'I don't think there's one black person you could talk to who hasn't experienced it,' he says."
"Ben Harper Surprises His Biggest Fan, and Catch a Sneak Peek of His New Song. He plays his latest track, talks about his fans, and discusses why he thinks a car stereo is as important as a guitar amp."
