You may remember Quan from Nas’ “Just A Moment,” off his God’s Son album. The singer recently took another moment to touch on the racial tensions currently making headlines in America.
In the gripping video for “All On Him” with Pusha T, viewers see footage of protests, news reports and riots resulting from murders of unarmed black men by police. The visials also casts a child actor portraying Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old Cleveland child who was fatally shot by police in 2014 while playing with a toy gun. When cops come at the boy with their guns drawn, another little boy stands in front of him to protect him from police.
“The concept I chose for this video was the Tamir Rice tragedy, because I can’t fully understand why those cops shot that baby,” Quan said via press release. “However, in my video he lives instead of dies. We were able to save him. The same way God saved us many times over. The key to the change is peace, great music and God. ‘Cause it’s all on Him. My friend Max profit who plays one of the police officers, was killed during the shooting of this video. That kid [at the end of the video with his hands up] is my son, an angel.”
“All On Us” comes from Quan’s latest mixtape, www.donferquan.com/em>, which features Pusha T, Ace Hood, Emilio Rojas, and Rapper Big Pooh.
