Kinetics & One Love – Will You Be Remembered? (Official Video) | Hip-Hop

Posted by on June 7, 2011

Talk about some powerful visuals – bringing on the actor for Biggie was a huge move by Kinetics & One Love. I dug the song before since it reminded me of their hit Sign Language, but the video above just took things up a notch. To find out more about the project i.e. the disasters it addresses, the inspiration, etc. hit the jump.

Here’s what the duo had to say…

“Kinetics & One Love are proud to present the full music video for “Will You Be Remembered?”
featuring Missy Modell. Inspired by the charity work of Platform H (an angel capital provider
for young social entrepreneurs), the song addresses the disasters in Haiti and Japan and
other pressing global issues. The music video features performances by Kinetics & One Love,
Missy Modell, The Trust, and Jamal Woolard – the actor who played Biggie Smalls in the 2009
film “Notorious.” Directed, produced and edited by Adam Chesbrough of DNK Productions, the
video shows two contrasting lifestyles: that of the privileged young socialite occupied with flashy
possessions and personal gain against that of a humble Biggie Smalls struggling to grow his
music from the street corners of Brooklyn to listeners around the world. The contrast is meant
to ask young people, fully aware of the catastrophes in Haiti, Japan and elsewhere, if they see
themselves adopting a self-consumed lifestyle or if they’ll do something that will be remembered
by people around the globe – like Biggie, whose music continues to touch worldwide listeners
nearly fifteen years after his death.”
