Stalley debuts a fresh visual for “Raise Your Weapons” in honor of the late Nelson Mandela, who passed away yesterday (December 5). Here, MMG’s lone wolf effectively tells a story with a clear message and a fitting homage to boot.
On YouTube, the treatment is captioned, “December is a month full of inspiration to #RaiseYourWeapons. On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks was arrested and on December 6, 1865 the 13th amendment was ratified.” With these historical facts as backing, Stalley paints a picture using the youth as a vessel to show that inequality is still an issue in America.
The clip was directed by Abraham Vilchez-Moran and Jai Jamison.
“Raise Your Weapons” first appeared on Stalley’s Honest Cowboy mixtape. Be sure to download that after you check out the video for the socially conscious track below.
