Oklahoma Rapper Fights Bullying
Oklahoma City Rapper Jabee is releasing a new single.
"Stephanie (SuperUgly)" depicts Jabee's personal experience with bullying at a young age.
"Sometimes you don't consider a girl calling you ugly bullying, you may not look at it that way", Jabee says. But Jabee's new rap video is centered around that exact scenario when he wanted to ask out a girl in the 7th grade. "Before I could say I want to go with you, she said oh you ugly," Jabee recalls.
He spoke to 6th grade students from Taft Middle School to share his story and encourage students to be kind to one another. Several students from Taft appear in the video along with Jabee's nephew who plays a younger Jabee.
He told the students, "I want to encourage you guys if you see those things stand up and do what's right".
The release party for Jabee is Saturday March 23rd at The Conservatory, 8911 N. Western Ave. The concert starts at 9pm and is open to all ages. Doors open at 8pm. Opening acts include The Admirals. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at www.ticketstorm.com . For more information on Jabee go to www.iamjabee.me .
