H20 For Humanity: Jon Connor And Keke Palmer “Fresh Water For Flint”
Flint native Jon Connor is calling out for all to help out with the toxic waterepidemic in his city. The Aftermath rapper has seen the worst of the effects that lead poisoning has done to his friends, family and neighbors.
City officials and the state government have yet to completely resolve the issue, so Connor decided to air out his frustrations and enlisted Keke Palmer to help him tell his story of turmoil in his hometown.
The Freshm3n-produced record opens with a light piano followed by the voice of director and fellow Flint native Micheal Moore, who tell the story of how the government turned their back on its own citizens, who are predominately African-American or live below the poverty line. Connor chimes in with his hard-hitting rhymes about breaking his silence on the reality of his life in Flint.
“I’m supposed to not say shit about the fact there’s poison in our water,” raps Connor. “It looks like population control, I don’t give a f*ck cuz that’s how I call it.”
Connor joins the growing list of artists like The Game, DJ Mustard, Big Sean, Diddy, and Meek Mill who have all made the crisis in Flint their own by sending millions of bottles of clean water to the city and housing citizens in hotels.
