Rapper ‘Highstrung’ Releases Powerful Music Video About Social Injustice
San Antonio (Nov. 18, 2014) – It’s the year 2014. We have a president of African descent
in “the land of the free.” Yet Hip-hop artist Paul Hightower, commonly known as “Highstrung,” believes we
still have a lot of progress to make. Today, he released a new gripping music video entitled “Social Injustice,” which
conveys a powerful message about the deaths of Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant. Highstrung wrote
the track and produced the music video primed to go viral world-wide in which he re-enacts the controversial deaths
of Brown, Martin and Grant. All of them were black males and have been deemed in much of public opinion to be
victims of social injustice.
Killeen native Highstrung, who has been making hip-hop music for 14 years, wanted to create a meaningful song
that would take a stand on the increasingly pressing problem. “I feel this is an issue that we all need to talk about and
I wanted to help do that through my music. As a young black male, I have the need to express my feelings through
my art because it could have been me or someone I know that was killed. I think that social injustice impacts
everyone,” explained Highstrung. “This song symbolizes that for the first time in a long time, my generation is
standing for something and doing something about it. I am trying to take a stand against inequality and unjust
situations. This music video is meant to shed light on a dark reality going on in our world every day that has been
going on for years,” he further explained.
The music video was directed by Mike Beltran. Highstrung and his manager, Samantha Najera of HeartFire Media, are
working to make the video go viral to spread the message worldwide. Highstrung was also the artist who produced
the viral song ‘Spurs Nation’ during the 2014 playoffs.
