Street Military is back to share a strong message with a new single ‘I Salute’

Published

on

On the 20 year anniversary after their first official full length and nationally acclaimed album, legendary rap group Street Military is back to share a strong message in revelations of today’s society and lack of support for the Black man.
“The only people on radio who talk about how great it is to kill each other are black”.
This quote, spoken by Pastor Michael T. Smith at a TEDx Talk event in 2015 and referenced in the beginning of Street Military’s new single and visual “I Salute”, was in response to the continuation of black on black gun violence and how it is perpetuated and glamorized on popular radio. In the song, however, Street Military gives homage to the Black Man, and recognizes the struggles of dealing with a system that has set them up to fail. Joined by another Texas legend Z-Ro, who also happened to be featured on their debut LP “Steel Gangstaz” in 2001, joins Street Military once again to preach to the streets, delivering a message of not wanting to hurt or kill their brothers, recognizing they all are dealing with the same struggles, from police brutality and gang affiliation, living in single-parent households, and the unequal treatment by the justice system because of the color of their skin.
After dominating regional radio independently throughout the 90’s, Houston,Tx based Street Military released their long awaited full length LP 20 years ago, that featured a majority of production by MJG (of the famed 8-Ball & MJG). Dubbed as Houston’s answer to NWA, their thought provoking and social justice littered songs became the new flavor of music until they too were devastated by what their music talked about. One member was shot and killed during an unprovoked drive by shooting and another convicted of aggravated assault and sentenced to 50 years imprisonment during the recording of their debut LP. Since then, the 3 remaining group members ( KB, Lil Flea & Icey Hot) have come back together marking a total of 30 years in the industry with this amazing message.
