Daye Jack recently released the visuals to “Don’t Shoot”, a song he dropped in order to address the issues plaguing the black community ranging from police brutality to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Featuring hip-hop politician Killer Mike (the recent best bud of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders), the video takes on the challenge of bringing lyrics to life.
The visual itself reflects the songs’ sentiments, incorporating clips of historic civil rights marches and protests and includes images of police beatings.
“Living with my head down/Hands up/No, no don’t shoot.”
With the chorus embodying the initial concepts of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, the video and song sends a powerful message, and makes the perfect start to a new Black History Month.
