Pacific Northwest/USA (June 21, 2012) -- There are thousands of music videos, but none quite like "Murder 2012." This new video by Word-Soul Artist LadyBoss-Amanishakhete (A-ma-ni-sha-kete) depicts a message that racism is escalating in the twenty-first century. Underreported in mainstream media, hate groups have tripled in the past three years, are increasingly dangerous and use high profile blacks - such as President Obama and Trayvon Martin - to heighten their hate messaging.
Both Obama and Martin are featured in the video, including Aaron Campbell, an unarmed mentally ill black man who was gunned downed by police in Portland, Oregon. The Aaron Campbell case gained national attention because the police officer, who was fired because of the unjustified shooting, is being reinstated to active duty.
"Times are dangerous for especially people-of-color," warns LadyBoss-Amanishakhete. "There is a clear attack on our civil rights."
Unlike her first album, Epiphany of Lady, which introduced her as an introspective and spiritual artist, in "Murder 2012", LadyBoss is hard-hitting. The soundtrack's powerful mix of symbolic lyrics also demonstrate an artist who remains true to her style - Word-Soul - a vocal sound LadyBoss created and defines as: a balance between spokenword, rap and hip hop with emphasis on a message that is underscored by jammin' music!
Since the release of "Murder 2012", LadyBoss' fans have grown to include people who live in the Netherlands, United Kingdom and Israel.
"Music with a message can bring people together," says LadyBoss. "Murder 2012 resonates with people who want hate and discrimination to end."
LadyBoss-Amanishakhete teamed with Portland hip-hop artist Anuff, who composed the music for "Murder 2012". To support this indie artist, music enthusiasts can download the song from cdbaby, whotune.com, Amazon MP3, iTunes and other online retailers. The video is produced by Perception Media in Portland, Oregon.
