About The Song
The song "Unjustness" ft Cerious is the remix to my song "InJustice". "Unjustness" was written after Daniel Prude's murder in response to all of the violence and police brutality that continues to happen across the country. The original song "InJustice" received so much positive feedback that people demanded a remix. So, I contacted the perfect person, which is my cousin Cerious. The lyrics pretty much just flowed off my brain, the words rolled off my tongue because it was something I wanted to talk about and felt it was only right that I spoke up.
"To the people that chose my song as the Most Impactful song of the year: Thank y’all so much. I am truly honored and grateful and I would love y’all to tell a friend to tell a friend about this video."
"Thank you to those who picked us to be the Most Impactful. I am honored that the message we portrayed in our song really hit them and left a lasting impression on them. I would also like to thank everyone involved in this for making this great platform for our city. Its a great thing I am humble and the recognition just let me know that I was meant for this and to keep pushing to get better."
