Wu-Tang Clan Sends Urgent Message in ‘A Better Tomorrow’ Video
The Wu-Tang Clan has dropped a powerful video for 'A Better Tomorrow,' their socially conscious track from their latest album of the same name. The clip is especially timely given the nationwide protests following the non-indictments of police officers in the Mike Brown and Eric Garner cases.
The video features soundbites from President Obama speaking on race relations in America and footage from nationwide demonstrations for equal justice. We see people from Ferguson, Mo., to Los Angeles, to Seattle and New York holding their hands up and carrying signs that read, "Black Lives Matter" and "Police are to Serve & Protect Not Shot & Kill."
Not only is the video important, but the Wu track itself samples Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' poignant song, ''Wake Up Everybody,' which makes it even more timely.
At the end of the video, a list of victim's names of police violence scrolls across the screen.
Let's hope this trend continues.
