I-octane heads for Washington
I-Octane will be heading for Washington on Friday for a performance on Saturday, January 17. For the artiste it is a chance to enjoy some of the excitement and buzz into the State’s capital surrounding the inauguration of President Elect Barack Obama.
The cultural singer will head home on Monday, January 19 to continue recording new materials in the studio.
I-Octane recently wrapped up his video shoot for his combination single with Spragga Benz, Hurt Mi. The song has been getting a lot of positive vibes in the dances as it is a powerful social commentary that addresses some of the ills taking place in the society regarding the mistreatment of children.
The video was shot on location at the Arrows studio under the direction of Phillip ‘Junior Arrows’ Linton and Asha.
“I hope this song and the video will speak to the social consciousness of the people. I think we should use our voice and campaign for their rights. If we don’t protect them who will,” was I-Octane’s passionate comment about his song.
“It really hurt man, to see how they are treating the future of our country,” he said unable to keep the emotions out of his voice.
