Trayvon, you will be remembered as a symbol of unity, and unjustified death.
Your parents are not alone fighting for your short life. They have millions of people they have never met, crying over you right now! I am one of them. You didn’t deserve any of this racism, you didn’t deserve those painful bullets. You did not deserve to have to beg for your life. I know you will never make it to college. You will never leave your town to follow your dreams. You have to know that you will never leave our hearts, and justice has to be served. Sleep in peace, while we fight for you!
These artist protested from the heart, not the pockets. Let’s be real we have immense pain over the aftermath and Zimmerman’s freedom. Indie Artist don’t worry about the fame, because that is not the sole purpose of their lives. Think about Serius Jones, he has never stopped making music and movies for the love of his art form! Get to know these artist! They are vocal and passionate about their art, and our generation. Let’s envision more for our community and legacy. Everyone collaborated for unity, and for personal reflection, in this tribute. Hip Hop has to give proper acknowledgement for Indie producer 88 Keys! Bilal Serius, Honors, Emily, and John, recorded their message to embrace solidarity,frustration and inner peace and we needed that after Trayvon Martin’s death. We still need it now! Trayvon deserves justice!
These artist offered a piece of themselves, and their talents and passion to strengthen us, during the rain. “Let It In” will be on repeat when you hear Emily King‘s beautiful voice in the opening. The collaboration embraces us with a dramatic, but hopeful reflection for our Trayvon Martin, and his present day lynching. This is about Indie talent and authentic purpose and love for Trayvon. I felt my tears! Some cried inside and were belligerent, You owned the right to feel all of these things, when you first heard the verdict!
I thought earlier about how I wish this song had a an official video. In this case, I think that, it is better to just listen. Relax, take a deep breathe, and close your eyes. Think about Trayvon ‘s recorded phone call. Imagine what Trayvon must have felt when he turned around, for that last time. After that, I want you to imagine every culture, color, and creed marching to protest.
This collaboration will create a dialogue and serve as a reflection of our human lives, and racism that will never die. As a nation, together we can get through this tragic and shameful misstep of the government
Let’s talk about love for our people, and coming together and the community outreach that gets ignored by most, and by some artist that you would never think, would even be approached to collaborate in this project! Some would we be taken aback that Serius Jones would be apart of this political effort! His intentions were not based on money, but solely from his conscience and vast love for his people! Too bad he’s being judged by actions that he didn’t foresee or instigate.This is a glimpse of the Real Serius Jones.
This song is a sermon, for you, and a reflection of moving life forward! We need to appreciate artists that love our struggle and desire! We can cultivate a positive environment for our next generation. We will build, and be better. All of Us! This is the joyousness,after pain and reflection in Hip Hop that is part of our culture!
Sadly as of late, you can sometimes forget it even exists.
“Let It In!’
