I know, I know, I know, I said that I wasn’t going to keep doing another video post but this video speaks to a social issue that should outrage anyone – domestic violence. (I know Mr. Mac Walton would have loved this video and the group behind it stands for.) Plus, let’s not forget that March is National Women’s Month. However, this video is just the type of music that I would want to grace the pages of the Greener Side of Hip Hop. Yes, I am a fan of hip hop but the aim of this blog is to show the other side of “hip hop” as much as possible. This video entitled “Wake Up” by Positive Controversy is deeper than what we are use to seeing in the hip hop arena… and on some levels one could probably say that there is some irony here.
About Positive Controversy (from their website):
We are a creative movement which combats the subpar standards set by today’s society.
Bringing awareness to an issue that millions of Americans face daily.
By engaging humanity with a mesage of ‘hope, initiative and social awareness.”
Please visit their website at: www.positivecontroversy.com and TODAY take time out to think about what you dream and dare to be and create some “positive controversy” of your own…. have audacity!
