Balthazar Getty Black Panthers and their Bones Are Close to My Heart

EXCLUSIVE

Balthazar Getty not only sings about the Black Panthers ... he carried the bones of Panther leader Huey Newton in his pocket!

Getty, who produced a music video about the black power group with rapper Kev Hicks, says Huey was a family friend ... so close he actually had his cremated bones.

As for the music video ... Getty says Beyonce's getting a bad rap and his video is also being misinterpreted ... the hoopla is not against all cops ... just bad ones.
