Legendary spoken word artist and socially conscious emcee Mic Crenshaw teamed up with Dead Prez for a classic tribute to everyday people. With a beat produced by Maestro of D12 and Silent Riot Productions in Detroit, the video was shot on location in Portland, Oregon by Kevin Hasenkopf and Payam Sadri of Salmon 109. Using local dancers and their families as the cast, this video turns the ordinary into extraordinary. We live in a society where food, clothes, shelter, education and the necessities of life are less and less of a guarantee. The degree to which there is an assault on working class people is constantly escalating. In this environment, keeping oneself, one’s family and each other healthy, strong and positive is heroic indeed. We don’t look to hollywood or Washington DC for inspiration, we look to each other and help ourselves.
We Are Our Own Superheroes.
