Slippy Skills - 'Knowledge Itself' Ft. Jonny Virgo

A music video for self-produced hip hop track 'Knowledge Itself' featuring Jonny Virgo and saxophone track by 33 Jazz founder Paul Jolly. The song/video can be broken down into 2 parts - the first verse is a message directed at young people and school pupils to focus on education and follow their aspirations, the second is tells the story of a male adolescent living in Brixton who follows the wrong path. This music video was funded by Revoluton Arts and aims to inspire young people to work hard to succeed.
