The Black Eyed Peas are back, and they’ve got a powerful political message to make in the just-released video for their new single, “Get It”.
Directed by Ben Mor, the video shines the spotlight on police brutality and the Trump administration’s immigration reform policy.
In the video, armed police officers are seen chasing and arresting a variety of people as band members will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo watch from the embattled streets, with a tagline at the video’s end reading, “Don’t normalize hate.”
Meant as a call to action, “Get It” directs viewers to organizations including the Hip Hop Caucus in partnership with Black Alliance for Just Immigration, #SchoolsNotPrisons, The Gathering for Justice, United We Dream and Revolve Impact.
In addition, Black Eyed Peas will be launching the Masters of the Sun Tour (named for their graphic novel “Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles”), which will see the band perform throughout Europe during summer 2018.
