blame it on Shake February 21, 2018

Fresh off contributing to the One Week Notice project with Audio Push, Dizzy Wright and them, Emilio Rojas is back with a solo effort that’s more than just music.

Addressing the struggles immigrants face when they come to America to pursue the “American Dream,” Rojas reps for the dreamers on the somber “Walk Through the Fire.”

“The US is being torn apart by racism, extreme nationalism, and xenophobia,” Rojas says. “This is a country built on the backs of immigrants. My father is an immigrant from Latin America (Venezuela), my niece and nephew are half Moroccan and have a Muslim father. The stories I told in this song are real. I wrote it because no one is speaking for us – and it is important that we aren’t marginalized – especially in times like these. Our voices DESERVE to be heard.”

Featuring Sebastian Mego and produced by The Donuts, the Adrien Oneiga-directed video can be seen below. Don’t hesitate to press play.
