Music video puts the spotlight on gang violence in Kern

With an unrelenting pace of homicides in Kern County so far this year, Bakersfield artist Danny Morrison became fed up. He pulled together a dozen local emcees in a musical collaboration designed to uplift and inspire. Morrison talked to South Kern Sol about the project. “I grew up on Cheatham & Cottonwood Road, in one of the poorest neighborhoods in B-Town. That’s why watching the further deterioration of the gang culture and its effect on the youth here breaks my heart.” Read on and watch the video at South Kern Sol.
