Quan Highlights Injustice in “All on Him” Video With Pusha T
Quan is best known for his guest appearance on Nas' 2005 single "Just a Moment." The rapper may not have experienced the overwhelming success many predicted for him following that track's release, but he's still putting in work to this day. An example of that comes with his new music video for the song "All on Him" featuring Pusha T.
The video focuses on the tragic death of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old black boy who was fatally shot by a Cleveland police officer in 2014. Quan splices in footage of all the police shooting-induced havoc that's been caused over the past few years with the story of Rice. But this tale has a happier ending as Quan portrays a world where the young boy lives.
"The concept I chose for this video was the Tamir Rice tragedy because I can't fully understand why those cops shot that baby," Quan said of the music video. "However, in my video he lives instead of dies. We were able to save him. The same way God saved us many times over. The key to the change is peace, great music and God. 'Cause it's all on Him. My friend Max profit who plays one of the police officers, was killed during the shooting of this video. That kid [at the end of the video with his hands up] is my son, an angel."
"All on Him" appears on Quan's latest mixtape www.donferquan.com which is available now on SoundCloud. The project includes some notable guests like Ace Hood, Rapper Big Pooh, Joe Scudda, Emilio Rojas and an intro from Nas.
