Just because we're young they don't treat us equal…
Nothing to do in this town at all
And they wonder why kids resort to alcohol.."
Shot on location in Ordsall with stunning backdrops of Salford, the new video by the M44 crew is easily the best music venture to come out of the city this year. Featuring Fresh Connections and Mikey B, and graffiti from Cruel, plus a full supporting cast of mates, M44 is aiming to bring rap back to its local roots and rescue it from yank bling gangsta (c)rap. This is emcee Salford style – lyrical, political, musical and magical. And shows the talent we have here if it gets the right support.
"Normally we don't get any opportunities, there's nothing going on, but we got a message on Facebook from Suite 57 asking us if we wanted to do this and it was like `No way?'…It was shocking, mad, in a good way…We just couldn't believe it" says Voltz, whose 17 and from Irlam "We want to get our music out there and this is just the start…"
M44 got help in putting the ace video and music project together by Suite 57, who are Mark and Renee Byrne, and the project was funded by Creative Industry In Salford and YDSF.
