“Our Time” | A Conversation with Hip Hop Artist & Activist Ahmen
By David Jordan Jr
Change comes about from those that seek it. As people in this world, we all have the opportunity to shake a tree, knock on a door and kick a rock. Metaphors in a literal form, these actions are what causes something to happen. You shake a tree, an apple will fall; if you shake the tree hard enough continuously, the entire tree will fall. This mentality is what causes change to come about in this world. Hip Hop Artist and Activist Ahmen has used the world as his platform to evoke change and bring awareness to all of the ills present in today’s society. Ahmen’s new single “Our Time” talks to the listener about not only what’s going on, but the song also serves as an inspiration to the listener. “Our Time” means it our time to make a difference, make a change and do it with expectancy. The video makes the old cliche “A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words” visible to the viewer. The depictions of all types of people from all types of background joining together for one main purpose encompasses the totality of “Our Time.” Ahmen recently spoke with ESHE Magazine about his new single “Our Time” and his forthcoming album (Due Out This Summer) , the present state of events taking place in America and about the power of change as an individual.
