Media and Radio inquiries:
Inspired by a true story of pain, hate, and loss, "Concealed Sorrow" goes a little deeper than your average rap song. The latest video from Kentucky-born rapper Theory Hazit captures all of the emotion wrapped up in one of the deeper cuts from his recent Modern Marvels release. The track, which is based on a real life incident witnessed as a youth by now-pastor and university professor Dr. Tony Campolo, is told from the perspective of a bullied, undefended, and forgotten high school youth who ended up taking his life after receiving the brunt of horrible actions from his classmates.
"I wrote 'Concealed Sorrow' hoping that the church would listen, watch, and perform the love of Christ to all that struggle," says Theory. Perhaps this message is just what the culture needs -- a wake up call to begin standing up for the downtrodden and outcasts of our society. At the very least, "Concealed Sorrow" should serve as an eye opener for anyone who thinks that bullying and hate are minor issues. "Family members, friends from high school, and co-workers also inspired the song and short film. I pray that Christians would step up and be as we are called."
Theory Hazit has always had a knack for combining dope rhymes with a unique storytelling ability rarely found in today's hip hop and there's no better evidence than this latest single. The video, directed by Donald W. Martin Jr., paints a picture of the pain that so many feel while addressing the lack of helping hands reaching out from the Christian community. "This song is definitely a cry for help, a cry for God, and a cry for his people."
