Craze 24 Drops Hard-Hitting 'Everybody's Got 2 Learn Sometimes'
‘Everybody’s Got 2 Learn’ is the latest rap offering from Craze 24 featuring Davinah. Featuring a sample of The Korgis’ 1980 classic ‘Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometimes’, the track not only heralds a touching feeling of nostalgia, but also serves as a hard-hitting tribute to the victims of knife and gun crime.
In response to recently increasing spikes of violence in and around London, Craze 24 aims to shine a light on the darker sides of street life. In doing so, he also hopes to incite a much-needed change.
With the song’s music video telling the heartbreakingly honest story of a little boy growing up without any positive role models in his life and the negative impacts this has, ‘Everybody’s Got 2 Learn’ strips away the glorification of weaponry that has become so prevalent within rap music.
Speaking on the issue, Craze 24, otherwise known as Jay Miller, said, “I think the UK music industry should be standing together in solidarity and addressing the many factors that are helping to create this epidemic. Artists, platforms and labels have the power of influence which, by default, makes them either a positive or negative role model. If we keep turning a blind eye, pointing the finger and ignoring our responsibility when releasing music, we’re also contributing to the problem.”
Alongside expressing his feelings on this topic through his music, Craze 24 and his ‘We Run the Roads’ collaborator, Big Ven, are launching a youth diversionary programme to help the most vulnerable and susceptible victims of knife and gun crime.
