Welcome to BuzzMusic, Jimmy D. Scott! Congratulations on releasing your latest music video for “Enough is Enough.” You do a fascinating job at allowing us to feel your passion through the screen. What was it like filming this visual component?
Filming this video was a true labor of love.
Could you please take us into the moment you decided to create both the song and video for “Enough is Enough”? What were the thoughts going through your mind?
Because of the senseless violence happening daily around the country and the world. I asked myself, “What could I do as an artist to help this dire situation?” So I decided to write a song and produce a video that would send a message: enough is enough. In What ways can your audience do their part to help put gun violence to a halt?
Talk to your loved ones, friends, and family. Talk to everybody, talk with people you don't know. Tell them violence is not the way; tell them they don't need a weapon to solve a problem. Ask them to try love instead of hate. Being in the music industry for a vast period of time, have you ever taken a stance on other political issues that you feel strongly about?
Back in the late ’70s and early ’80s, there were rash child killings in Atlanta. So I wrote and released a song titled Be Careful. The track was distributed by Clarence (Pee Wee) Harris and the committee for student rights. In 1996 I wrote a song for Bill Clinton's reelection campaign titled Keep Bill on the Hill. The song was financed and distributed by Joe Davis and the UAW.
What's next for you?
I'm currently working on a new album project that I'm very excited about. Planning to release it in early 2023.
