Dres (of Black Sheep) – Propagation [video]
Dres (Andres Titus) the lead rapper of the legendary hip-hop duo Black Sheep, has released the official music video for his single â€œPropagation.â€
Coming at an eerily appropriate time on the heels of the Mike Brown verdict, â€œPropagationâ€ is a record birthed as a conversation between Dres and his young son, who’s featured on the record and in the video with him, about what a child of color would need to know about growing up in America. â€œA hook wasnâ€™t necessary, just a rhyme that continuously told you things that would help you walk through life as a young child of color in America,â€ says Dres.
â€œI am from an era where we did get educated within the music, not to say we didnâ€™t have fun or there werenâ€™t raunchy records, but there was this element of hip-hop that was educational and empowering. That is over-abundantly missing in todayâ€™s music and it is important to convey things that matter, especially to my son and young people in general. The things that are paramount in music today donâ€™t necessarily matter. We have to take responsibility for what our kids do out there because we wonâ€™t be judged equally.â€
