[Video] "When There Is Hopelessness, People Revolt" - Zeyi

During this era of fallen citizens such as Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Sandra Bland, and so many more…many of us might question whether to reach for a Bible or a Baretta to combat the devastation. As recent research shows increasing rates of social injustice, MorValue’s own Zeyi releases audiovisual mini doc/commentary, titled ‘When There Is Hopelessness, People Revolt” to address the tragedy and turmoil inching closer and closer to home each day. Musically Zeyi utilizes a powerful clip from the late TuPac Shakur to precede the hard hitting and nostalgic bass-line stemming from Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre’s 1991 hit, “Deep Cover” also known as 187. The track is reflective and real, showcasing Zeyi’s lyrical abilities while also bringing about awareness especially in a time when Black people continue to exist on the wrong end of employment statistics, incarceration rates and police aggression. This emotionally charged “Deep Cover,” rendition shines the light on every one of us, with a shout to look deep within and recognize the distance between our growth and our prejudices. This video couldn't have come at a better time either. Justice needs to be served for those in the wrong but it begins with awareness and Zeyi is putting it in the public's eye. Be on the look out for Zeyi's upcoming EP titled, No Promises.
