Released via the recently relaunched Payday Records imprint, the track is a tribute to the struggles of our nation’s youth today and of years past. However, rather than dwell on the negative, Radamiz delivers his verse with nothing but positivity.
“’Save The Youth’ is to show there are good days and rewarding days while you fight on your path,” Radamiz tells HipHopDX. “The video serves as a celebration of consistency. The children in the video reciting the chorus at the end is the heart of the video. We strip away the toughness, the bravado, the shield and sing along with tomorrow’s future.
“Just as much as we strive for our goals, you must know how impressionable the children are. Redirect your attention to those paying attention the most – make sure they know the good is consistent and on its way. Hard work pays off — eventually and definitely.”
The 25-year-old artist is seemingly on his way. In 2013, Radamiz’s was deemed Hot 97’s East Coast “Who’s Next” artist. He’s opened for everyone from Kendrick Lamar and Rakim to A$AP Ferg and Talib Kweli and recently performed at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.
