[VISUAL] MH the Verb - NINJA (Extended Jam)

"[NINJA} was inspired by the conversations I've had with respected elders in my community who expressed their frustration with the overuse of the words 'Nigga' and 'Bitch' in hip-hop. The feeling is that those words have been normalized and used by people outside of the black community and promoted to undermine our self-worth.  When I wrote the lyrics, it was originally meant to empower young black people by giving them an alternative phrase to use when speaking positively about themselves.The video is directed by Peter Ten and was shot at an abandoned naval base in Richmond, California." - MH The Verb
