Sir The Baptist debuts his new short film which tackles the monstrosity that is human trafficking.
The socially-conscious film opens up with “a survivor of human trafficking,” Elizabeth, who ultimately becomes the film’s star. Sir the Baptist uses the film to tell Elizabeth’s story. The film was co-directed by Sam Cahill.
Opening with how Elizabeth was initially sold into sex trafficking, Sir speaks on how they met stating that he “got to know God in a coffee shop.”
The single is featured on the newcomer’s 2017 debut album, Saint to Sinner.
In a recent interview with Rap-Up, Sir spoke more about the film and its message. “The way that we perceive love and the lack of focus on human trafficking in hip-hop culture has really gone astray,” he explained. “The emphasis is on a ‘foreign’ chick for music videos and using women as vehicles, instead of viewing them for the Gods that they are and the ones who’ve brought us into this world. I hope that this film can be one piece to shift the culture back to a place of respect and sustainability.”
