In the midst of the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, Jon Connor addresses the ongoing issue that is plaguing his city on this PSA featuring Keke Palmer. There’s two sides to every story. Here’s what he tells XXL:
“The song is basically about the situation going on that nobody sees. I lived in Flint up until two, three years ago, so being in California and seeing the way it’s being portrayed on the news, seeing the deterioration of my city, its all that frustration and emotion. I feel like I’m the voice of Flint, so I’m just trying to verbalize how all the natives feel.
I’m just trying to make all the dots connect of people I know in the industry who’ve reached out to me. Kelly Price has reached out. I was talking to Michael Moore and he said he was interested in doing a benefit concert so we’ll see. I think we’re just trying to figure out how we can put all of our resources together for this one cause and one goal.”
