At just 15 years old, South Bronx-by-way-of-North Carolina artist Elijah The Young Prophit displays a level of empathy and wisdom that people three times his age could only hope to harness. And those strong traits, in addition to his talents on the mic, are on display in his new video/mini-movie for his politically charged single, “Letter 2 Trump.”
The cinematic visual offering is directed and written by Shock B of Def Squad Studios, who uses the young rapper’s lyrical insights to portray the stark reality of our current political climate. The video plays out like a short film that encapsulates the fear and horror that so many of our young people have been forced to endure during school shootings and instances of police violence.
Elijah portrays himself not just as an artist looking for answers, but also a young man unsure about where this world is heading. But he—along with his guests, Da Youngfellaz—has an air of hope that cuts through the darkness, making even the most cynical person hope that maybe, just maybe, the intended recipient of “Letter 2 Trump” gets to hear it.
