No stranger to politically inspired hip-hop, rapper Quan, who teamed up with Nas on the 2005 track "Just A Moment," has delivered another song that takes on current issues. On "All On Him," a track featuring Pusha T., he references social injustice. For the song's video, he recounts the tragic shooting of Tamir Rice.
He sings, "I could have been dead by now/I could have been doing life in jail right now" on the song. "No matter who you are or where you're from, it's all on Him."
The video includes a recreation of the shooting and features clips from CNN news reports announcing the "not guilty" verdict in the trial of the officer who fired the shots that killed the 12-year-old.
