On the heels of his groundbreaking performance at Tidal X: 1015, that benefited the poverty-fighting organization The Robin Hood Foundation, Atlantic Records recording artist Sir The Baptist releases a groundbreaking message driven visual for his current single, “What We Got” featuring Grammy-winning producer/songwriter, Donald Lawrence. The track was written and produced by Sir himself.
Sir the Baptist joined contemporaries Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill, Common, Robin Thicke and more as his message-driven music has resonated in a true impactful way among his peers and fans the world over. Now following this paramount moment, Sir gives fans a new music video and a glimpse from his moment at Tidal X: 1015.
The music video finds Sir delivering a powerful message of faith and being true to one’s community and history. Baptist uses the music and accompanying video as a bridge for building a stronger sense of community for African-Americans, especially as it relates to economics. Just as every major community has a self-sustaining Chinatown, Sir believes that African-American neighborhoods too can work toward creating their own self-sustaining communities. This message of hope and harmony is reflected in the video, lyrical theme and artwork for “What We Got.” Ultimately, the song is really about taking pride and ownership for one’s own community.
Full-length debut project, PK: PREACHER’S KID coming soon.
