“My new video “Mama Proud” Cautionary tale for the youth. Life is about choices, one bad decision can haunt you for the rest of your life or change your life forever. Troubled young man can turn into another statistic at any moment.” – Illa Scorseze
With everything that has been going on in the city recently, the lyrics to Radio B’s remix of the late great David Bowie’s Lazarus and the visuals for Illa Scorseze‘s “Mama Proud” are a fitting call to everyone to please stop the nonsense, even in the middle of writing this I hear about 2 people getting shot on Midlothian Turnpike this morning, in the club on the dance floor at that.
As a person who focuses on the music primarily, I do pay attention to what is going on in the community. I believe artists should make music that reflects the times and there is not a better time than now to discuss and highlight what’s going on in RVA – as well as coming up with solutions for this problem of senseless violence. All I can say is let’s get it together people – and thank you to Illa and Radio for showing and speaking on these issues. #WESEEIT
