I Love the whole concept & video that Wale has here & LOVE that My Favorite Poet/Writer, the Grammy Award Winning Poet J. Ivy opened & closed the video! He was the perfect person to play the role of the Preacher! You all may know him from his verse on the song 'Never Let Me Down' w/ Kanye West & Jay-Z where he delivered one of the most powerful verses in hip hop. His other recordings are also Next Level. Also giving love to The Talented Film duo Coodie & Chike who produced it! It is all Fire!!!
This Video is So True for So Many People! Domestic Abuse is Real and Real People Need Help! This is part of the First Step - Let's just acknowledge and admit that there is a problem and then seek help. Thanks for making this song and video for the world J. Ivy! Your poetry is Healing! Thanks to Cam Be, Nia Fairweather and Stephen Hill & The Child Actors! You all brought so much life to a very important issue and cause!
After watching this I am truly inspired to learn more, dig deeper and fight harder for injustice and the things that are just right! So many times I've thought, "What can I do to make the world better?" Well, I guess the first step to recovery is to just stand up and admit it. The poetry you write and speak is honest and the world needs to hear it. Thanks for the much needed music moment J. Ivy! It's Bold! I hope the example you set is the positive energy we need to move toward better days.
