Dominican artiste highlights struggles by everyday people
Published on November 1, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

CHICAGO, USA -- Dominican artist Mario Valentine is embarking on a mission to highlight the current struggles by everyday people and to open their eyes to the changes that need to happen to help out in these challenging times.

Mario 'Iblacky' Valentine
Popularly known as "Iblacky", Valentine has produced a new video to demonstrate what he describes as capitalistic lust and greed over the poorer citizens of the world.

Produced by Barefoot Production/alien generation records TC Campbell and filmed and edited by Shank Robinson, the video is a powerful illustration of the yin and yang of the material things in life.

Several individuals are attracted to the finer things in life, Valentine sings in the video, while those in the position to have those things forget the less fortunate. Indicating that we are both of these people at the same time, he rings out a powerful chorus in “The power you possess.”

Shot on the Chicago Bridge, the video also depicts a portrayal of the American revolution between the white man and the native American Indian and whose spirit Valentine believes is still alive today.

Indeed, the song and video is a call to everyone in power and without power to take the time to care for each other in order to break the chains of mental slavery that have been a historical burden to many regardless of whatever side of the coin that one chooses to perceive reality.

The video can be viewed here.
