Bashy - Black Boys Video Shoot
I was at the video shoot for Bashy's Black Boys and a mad amount of people turned out for the video. A whole bunch of So Solid, Akala, Wretch, Scorcher, one guy from Kidulthood and that's just off the top of my head. The whole aim of the track is to inspire young black boys and to show them just how many rolemodels there are around them who don't get much of the limelight. " Obviously in a lot of communities it's a bit mad at the moment and theres not enough positive rolemodels seen out there for the youngers to see. I decided to do a song to highlight the ones that are here so that they could possibly aspire to them." This track is among many that will feature on Bashy's new concept album, "This track is the first one, it's a little experiment of material that I don't usually make, there's a tune called Daddy's little girl where I talk about a little girl being molested, theres one where I meet God..." The album won't be a nationwide release but a higher level version of a mixtape. "We're going to try get this video up on all the stations, U, Base, Kiss, Box the whole lot for Black History Month."
