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.
Next week I’m dropping the video for “Walk Through Fire” featuring my homie @sebastianmego!!! With everything going on with the Dream Act, and all of the acts of hate and xenophobia… it’s important for us to stand with the dreamers and show people that we have love and tolerance for everyone. The video drops next Wednesday, February 21st. Directed by @oneiga and edited by @mindrru. Drop a comment below if you’re excited!!! Shout out to @_gracia_danny for the amazing artwork!!! 🖤🌹produced by The Donuts!!!
