Some Funk for Your Monday

Via NOLA, a little funk for your Monday morning; a remake of the classic "It Ain't My Fault" by Lenny Kravitz, Mos Def and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.  The effort is the result of the anger Preservation Hall creative director Ben Jaffe feels at BP, Transocean and Halliburton ducking responsibility for the oil spill.

NOLA reports:

Jaffe hoped to release the song immediately on iTunes to benefit the nonprofit Gulf Relief Foundation, created to promote coastal restoration and assist families affected by the spill. But creative processes often move more quickly than legal processes. Weeks later, the various parties involved still were securing necessary clearances and lobbying iTunes to waive its percentage of sales. 

The song should be available on iTunes tomorrow.  Meanwhile, you can hear the song and watch the session:
