Beats for Change Show #32 – Step Off The Block Mix with Kenny Keys

Dedication: Step Off The Block.

This time we want to introduce you to our special guest Kenneth Carter aka Kenny Keys, with a crazy tight mix and of course your suave host Sam Zipursky will guide you through the mix!

As usual we’re supporting every mix with a specific dedication. As our guest Kenny Keys is Houston bound but originally from Chicago, we chose a Chicago initiative to focus on.

‘Step Off The Block’ is a film directed by Chicago’s own The Work of Will Adams. In his own words its all about the following:
“In combatting gun violence in our communities, you rarely hear anyone talking about saving the shooter. If you save the shooter, you save everyone else. The shooter has been demonized by society, so we think the shooter is the one with nothing to loose. But, the shooter has everything to lose from incarceration to death. Before the shooter hits their end game, they cause irreparable damage to multiple families and communities.

Step Off the Block reminds us that the shooter is human and often plagued by bad decision making, lack of opportunity and a poor support system. If we can change any of these variables, we can give the shooter and their victims a chance.”
