Midday Monday Press Play: J.Kwest ‘Don’t Push Me’ (feat. Soul Children of Chicago)

jkwestTaking a close and personal look at the bullying problem, “Don’t Push Me” tells a story that unfortunately is still too familiar for too many youth. Featuring the Soul Children of Chicago – a 60+ ensemble of city kids led by Dr. Walt Whitman – and produced by Hilton Wright II, J.Kwest has penned an anthem of self-affirmation and SPEAKING UP. As the stats at the end of the video remind us, 64% of kids that are bullied never say a word, and it’s changing lives.

“Don’t Push Me” is a heartfelt record that tells a true story, and the video – directed by Don Baptiste – takes us through a school to witness it all firsthand, leaving us with some jarring statistics on the bullying epidemic.

This is a record and artist worth our attention. “Don’t Push Me” comes from the album Lemonade, which is now available everywhere digitally.

J.Kwest even tells his own story of being bullied as a kid, on his website. Now be lifted and inspired!
