Sauce Remix - Gunshots (@sauceremix)
Better than most anti-violence campaigns created by PR experts or politicos seeking media coverage . . . This advocacy message seems authentic because it's directed at an audience who might be persuaded to put down illegal guns. But better than TKC analysis of the clip . . .
Check out the artist statement from Sauce Remix:
Here's the written message:
"Here's an interview explaining the ideals behind the movement and stop the violence campaign "Gunshots". My name is Royce Handy, I go by "Sauce Remix". I am a rapper/community activist with a heart for combating the black homicide victimization rate (BHVR) and the role that music, specifically rap, plays in it's influence.
Missouri is leading the nation for the 3rd year in a row with the BHVR. From 2003-2009 KC & STL was named on the top ten FBI most dangerous cities list, making Missouri the only state with two metropolitan areas on that list! My heart is grieved, as I am a product of that environment and the deceptive mindset it produces.
Now changed and wanting to use my musical influence to lead our communities to change, hope, positivity and the consequences of cause and effect, I've dedicated my talent, service and life to this cause. My new song "Gunshots" addresses this epidemic and strategically offers ideas from a practical standpoint on how to reach our dying areas. We are starting a campaign to publicize our efforts, through music and media, to reach places that are influenced by hip hop culture and more!"
As Kansas City concludes another exceptionally violent year . . . It's important to see members of the community and artists taking action against this ongoing slaughter and developing new ideas for the year ahead.
