MUSIC VIDEOS

"I Can't Breathe" is a visual representation of the demonization of African Americans in society and our concurrent feelings of suffocation in a world that doesn't acknowledge our voice.  This song was written in honor of Eric Garner who was killed by a police officer using an illegal choke hold.
