REASON x Field Nigga [Official Video]

Produced by Nabeyin & Keyel TDE Films/Top Dawg Entertainment Video Directed by Jon Primo

TDE’s REASON is back with a powerful message just in time for the historic day of #Juneteenth. For those that aren’t familiar, Juneteenth (now celebrated every June 19th) is a day to celebrate one of the Executive Order to end slavery. On June 19, 1865 Major Gen. Gordon Granger announced in Galveston, Texas that slave were now free. Unbeknownst to the slaves at the time that President Lincoln has formally declared slaves free Jan 1, 1863. Unfortunately, this order was made during the Civil War, therefore, Slave owners in the south did not follow these rules until surrending and acknowledging defeat of the Civil War (hence two years later).

We think the timing of REASON’s video is on point as black Americans are faced with the juxtaposition that we are “free”, but still unjustly treated daily within a country we too built. Nevertheless, it’s great to see artists, activists, athletes and all others dedicate their voice and platform to raise awareness to the systemic events that inevitably set society back.
