New Video - Mic Blaque "Powerless"

#BlackLivesMatter

How long will black boys & girls be the martyrs for us to realize the power of the collective to tackle the struggles of our own community and the challenges put in place by the powers that be? Some lose hope every time we lost to racism. Some expect to lose with the ideology of self determination at hand.

With this in mind, Mic Blaque brings us the video to "Powerless", the 4th single off his EP #RespectTheCool directed by MoNae Mayweather. "Powerless" is a song from that place deep inside where you find emptiness, yet inspiration to bring forth change.

"Respect The Cool" Art Direction by MoNae Mayweather

I've been getting a lot of great feedback about the artwork for the "Respect The Cool" EP. The art direction, graphic design and photography was done by my creative and media director, MoNae Mayweather (@photosbynae - photosbynae.com). 

She was heavily inspired and influenced by Jean-Michel Basquiat's artwork and decided to incorporate that into "Respect The Cool". From the music to the art, this piece of work is truly a masterpiece!

The idea for "Respect The Cool" as a whole was to bring the people a collage which consisted of many different art forms with music as the forefront. We just want to say thank you for your love and support.
