Vonte – Ghetto Black Boy

Vonte debuts on SpitFireHipHop with his ‘Ghetto Black Boy’ video.

Hailing from the Westside of Chicago, Vonte comes through with his latest visual, painting a very clear picture of the world we’re living in.

Taking influence from Donny Hathaway’s classic, Vonte tells a story that’s eerily similar to Donny’s all these years later. With director Ian Rennels behind the lens, Vonte takes us to the streets of Compton to tell his tale ‘Ghetto Black Boy‘.

Says Vonte: “Being a Ghetto Black Boy from Chicago and growing up on Compton music, I decided to shoot the video in a town that I grew up listening about as a child. ‘Ghetto Black Boy’ is what I embody. Uniting our brothers and sisters to come together and be there for each other like back in the Civil Rights days. Back then us black folks all looked out for each other. The gangs were originally established to protect the communities from the crooked police of AmeriKKKa. I would love to help be the spearhead of uniting and bringing us together to be able to protect our own. Black people have been taught to ‘hate ourselves and love they wealth.’ I want to spread positive energy, motivate and encourage us to first love ourselves but also love our brothers and sisters.”
