The cowardly action which took place on June 17th has cast a black cloud over the entire State and Country. Ben G is a proud Carolinian and has a tremendous platform to spark change, being signed to Waka Flocka‘s 36BRICKHOUSE. And if you’re unaware today there’s a special debate taking place in the South Carolina Statehouse, a debate to remove the Confederate flag flying over Government properties throughout the state. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
Prior to moving to Atlanta close to Waka in pursuit of musical success, Ben G called Columbia, SC home and this is where the State House is located. Every day him and his Mother, whom recently passed, would drive past the building every day. A young Ben would point up at the State House and wonder what the flag flying high with a blue x in the middle was. His mother would often respond, “That’s everything that’s wrong with the South. As long as that flag is flying high then the South will never progress.”
Now Ben’s mother never got the chance to see this debate occurring today, but it took a tremendous tragedy for this discussion to occur in the public eye. Today Ben releases the official music video for “Just Believe“. This video pays respect to the Nine Victims that lost their lives inside of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on the evening of June 17th, basically in Ben’s backyard.
Currently Ben is busy working on his forthcoming EP releasing mid-Summer, titledSpanish Moss & Collard Greens. This is an ode to everything positive the South is known for, Ben advises everyone to try Collard Greens with Texas Pete’s Hot Sauce at least once in their lives.
2015 so far has been very successful for the young star. Ben recently came off a Nationwide, sold-out tour with Waka Flocka dubbed the Turn Up Godz tour. And now Waka feels that the World is ready to hear Ben’s message, a message of hope and fighting through adversity.
