THE TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY HIP-HOP ARTIST SAUCE REMIX DEBUTS ANTI-VIOLENCE 'GUNSHOTS' CLIP FEATURING TESTIMONY FROM THE FAMILIES OF LOCAL HOMICIDE VICTIMS!!!



Take a look at a Kansas City hip-hop video just released this morning that speaks to the longstanding urban core homicide crisis which impacts local life throughout the metropolitan area.

To wit . . .

AN EPIC CLIP FROM HIP-HOP ARTIST SAUCE REMIX SPEAKS TO THE EPIDEMIC OF GUN VIOLENCE IN KANSAS CITY AND FEATURES POWERFUL TESTIMONY FROM THE FAMILIES OF LOCAL HOMICIDE VICTIMS!!!

Check it, this is probably the most important bit of Kansas City media content for Sunday morning . . .



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.

Developing . . .

This is a really good effort. Hope other media pick up on this movement and don't get dismayed by the idiots in the comments that are sure to follow but only reflect their own silly worldview. People say that the community doesn't do anything about their own homicide rate: Well take a good look because these brave people are speaking out about violence with ILLEGAL guns in their community.

Great video, important message.

I like the effort and the innovation.

Just my opinion.

I credit this young man for making the effort and for "finally seeing" what many have seen for years. Why can one not "RAP" about something "GOOD" ? Until the black community steps up, and "HELPS THE POLICE" and take "THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS BACK", nothing will change. We will continue to be the lil brother to Chicago. Just call us Murdertown II.

One motive for trolling, and perhaps one we're all most familiar with, seems to be simple boredom – too much free time after school, at work, or between jobs. These are the individuals who are trolling to kill a few hours, entertain themselves, and even impress others of a similar mindset.
Groups of trolls coalesce on bulletin-board sites such as 4chan, where they post links to targets that might prove "fun", and compete with each other to see who can be the funniest, cleverest, or most extreme. Interestingly, those same sites also tend to be the powerhouses that generate internet "memes" – popular concepts that spread beyond the internet to become part of our offline culture.
A second motive appears to be a need for attention, a craving that will accept any kind of attention, however positive or negative, as long as that person is at the centre of it. Such individuals may not just post offensive messages, but also annoyingly implausible stories, grand claims, and obvious lies.
A third motive seems to involve a sense of disenfranchisement. In a climate where even graduates with good degrees are struggling to find jobs, and house prices make getting on the property ladder an impossible dream for many, it's little surprise that a selection of the population may consider themselves short-changed. It would take a strong character not to feel a sense of injustice at the fact that, a generation earlier, their exact counterparts were walking into secure, lifelong employment and able to buy nice homes.

Good for him. He's one young black male voice in the wilderness but it's a start. It's more than most in the black community are doing.

As long as the elite top 1% are able to keep the commoners pitted against each other in a hunger (and stuff) games frenzy nothing is going to change.

chuck as much as you want to be you aren't the daddy/master of the black community. they dont need your approval for shit.

also people who think that poor black neighborhoods need to better cooperate with police should read more.

"No such social lubricant exists for the police. If you are young and black and live in North Lawndale, if you live in Harlem, if you live in any place where people with power think young black boys aren't being stopped and frisked enough, then what happened to us is not a single stand-out incident. It is who the police are. Indeed they are likely a good deal worse.

What people who have never lived in these neighborhoods must get, is that, like the crooks, killers, and gangs, the police are another violent force that must be negotiated and dealt with. But unlike the gangs, the violence of the police is the violence of the state, and thus unaccountable to North Lawndale. That people who represent North Lawndale laugh at the idea of handing over more tools of incarceration to law enforcement is unsurprising."

A good video. This looks like a good new effort.

The city should take the money being wasted on grifter like Aim4Peace, NoVa, and COMBAT and give these folks some funding to expand their effort.
There's no telling if they will have any impact, but it's a sure thing that what's been going on for the last few years has had NO results at curbing the violence and murders.

hey 11:48, I don't give a flying fuck if the niggers in North, South, East or West "LAWNDALE" kill each other. If they do it's one less worry for whitey. So don't see anything and don't tell the cops. When it's your son, or daughter or maybe U...your smart ass may change your attitude.

4:40 tells me the Chiefs are getting their asses handed to them and the Independence meth heads are looking to kill somebody either in the Arrowhead parking lot or on Tony's blog.

8:19 We all can now see that you know how to copy and paste on this blog. Your post is stupid, but I am sure brilliant in the bubble you live in. You might just be our next media outlet, and while your shit is stupid, you will have many stupid people who think you are brilliant, (or clever) you and brooks should team up. Was that racial? well that depends on if you are Canadian because if you are it was definatly racial!

7:02 drink one more! Your post says you live in Independence.

Legitimate commenters, who have something thoughtful to say and/ or add to the conversation (for and against), link spammers who comment on the off chance they might get some traffic as a consequence of their comment (sometimes these fall into the first category..hard to tell) and trolls, who make it their business to criticize anything written and the people who wrote it, in some sort of sad attempt at self validation by being nasty towards others for the sake of it. Like taking drugs, trolling is a poor mistress that demands more and more to feed the self satisfying addiction that props up their self esteem.

Wonderful effort. We need to reach out to stop gun violence in every way. Let's hope this sends the right message.
