Wed, 29 Apr 2015 16:47:36
In this clip Sparks rescues women sold into the sex trade. Featuring Snoop Dogg & Problem.
Grammy nominated DJ/producer Clinton Sparks is a triple threat, as he wrote, directs and stars in a new cinematic video for the unforgettable jam "The Reaper," featuring Snoop Dogg and Problem. But wait, it gets even better and Sparks is actually a quadruple threat.
Sparks has also partnered with non-profit, Not For Sale, for the release, which aims to make people familiar with and educated about the global issue of sexual abuse and human trafficking. In the clip, Sparks comes to the rescue of women who were sold into the sex trade, so he is a bit of a hero, both in the video and outside of it.
So not only did he do it all, in terms of roles, and not only did he recruit some pretty awesome talent to join him on the track, but he also added a charity element and encourages education about a topical issue.
Applause, applause for Clinton Sparks. We can't turn a blind eye to the fact that people are sold as sex workers without their consent and against their will.
"The Reaper" seamlessly blends hip-hop with rock 'n' roll.
The video really is like a mini movie so you need to stop what you are doing and totally immerse and involve yourself in the storyline and plot as it unfolds.
Big ups to Clinton Sparks for a great song and an even better video and message.
Have a look and a listen!
