Fashawn’s Touching Single Is A Strong Vignette About Young, Black Fatherhood (Video)

Within Fashawn’s The Ecology, “Higher” is one of the everlasting gems. Fashawn looks at fathers—as a parent himself, with some profound insights. The song is personal, heartfelt, and touching. To core fans of the Fresno, California MC, the DJ Exile-produced “Higher” is a deep extension of his Boy Meets World introduction. The vid, featuring Fashawn’s daughter Hannah only enhances the MC’s thought-provoking vision.

“The video brings the song to life in an organic and beautiful way,” wrote Fashawn in a press release. “There isn’t enough positive images of young Black men out there being fathers to their kids to begin with, especially in rap videos. I believe it’s a break from the norm and a side of me of that my audience doesn’t get to see everyday.”
