Jonathan Hay and company did an exclusive premiere with MTV News for the song “I Can’t Breathe” for Eric Garner by KXNG CROOKED of Slaughterhouse (Shady Records). Not only is this a powerful and uplifting song, it also features additional production by Jonathan Hay. Click here to read about it on MTV.
Crooked sampled 2Pac’s “Pain” – with added production by Jonathan Hay. The cover art was created by Shalé with a horrific image of Garner being held in a chokehold by law enforcement officials.
The song has exploded online and has went viral. We couldn’t be any happier to be apart of this important message. Websites such as The Boombox, AllHipHop, AmbrosiaForHeads, JustWhooKid, 2DopeBoyz, Ego Trip Land all posted the song along with many more.
UPDATE: In a response to Questlove’s call for protest music, The Boombox rates the “10 Hip-Hop Songs” and we have one of them – actually the #1 song on the list. Amazing feat for our team. See here – http://theboombox.com/10-hip-hop-songs-questloves-call-for-protest-music/?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000056
