Taking a close and personal look at the bullying problem, “Don’t Push Me” tells a story that unfortunately is still too familiar for too many youth. Featuring the Soul Children of Chicago – a 60+ ensemble of city kids led by Dr. Walt Whitman – and produced by Hilton Wright II, J.Kwest has penned an anthem of self-affirmation and SPEAKING UP. As the stats at the end of the video remind us, 64% of kids that are bullied never say a word, and it’s changing lives.
“Don’t Push Me” is a heartfelt record that tells a true story, and the video – directed by Don Baptiste – takes us through a school to witness it all firsthand, leaving us with some jarring statistics on the bullying epidemic.
This is a record and artist worth our attention. “Don’t Push Me” comes from the album Lemonade, which is now available everywhere digitally (iTunes).
J.Kwest even tells his own story of being bullied as a kid, on his website (http://jkwest.com/my-bully-story/)
