Sir The Baptist and The Chuch People Raise Hell In His New Visual Directed By Nick Brazinsky & DadaCreative.
I'm really not the easiest critic to please. You can't give me bullshi* lyrics, sprinkled with a bumping bass beat, and convince me you're the next best thing since the second coming of Jesus Christ- absolutely not. As a consumer & critic of music I'm only impressed when music has appealed to all five senses of the body- see, hear, taste, smell, and most importantly, feel. Not too many artists have the ability to draw their audience into their music in order to experience all five senses in one song. BUT Sir The Baptist has done just that with this artistic piece, "Raise Hell." Not only does he pay homage to his Baptist roots but he showcases his intelligence and knowledge of political and societal issues with his lyrics.
As he chants, "I'm gonna raise hell until I reach heaven's door-" this further lets me know, this will not be the last we hear from Sir the Baptist. Through his artistry, he is making his generation, amongst others, aware of the blatant racism, inequality, mulitple killings, and of a flawed system that needs correction.
"They just want to dance. And Im gonna let them" is the last lyric on "Raise Hell" that subliminally states, "Even though Sir is apart of a generation who'd rather listen to dance and party music- his music will not just make you dance but his music will make you think; his music will make you aware; his music will somehow some way bring about change; his music will appeal to all five senses that will ultimately make you a consumer, critic, and fan.
