SHI 360 is back after taking a break to complete his masters degree. Shi 360’s long awaited international single, ‘Forgive & Forget’ off the upcoming ‘Shalom Haters’ album on Shemspeed/Shi 360 Music. The new single arrives on the global hip hop scene at a time when the media has been astoundingly silent in response to recent rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. The song is a desperate plea for truth in media reporting as well as a cry to stop the seemingly endless violence in the Middle East.
â€¨â€œForgive and Forgetâ€ reaffirms both sides’ shared human suffering, acknowledging â€œI see your pain/I know you see my painâ€ and urges people to rise up against media-perpetuated lies â€“ â€œHow do you think/The cameraman is close to the fire? The work is for hire/Showing what they want to inspire.â€ SHI 360’s hard-hitting lyrics are balanced by a piano-driven beat and a melodic verse sung by Harte, a female vocalist who has previously collaborated with Killah Priest from Wu-Tang Clan. In her soulful, attention-grabbing voice, Harte drives SHI 360’s message home as she sings â€œI don’t want no struggles/I don’t want no lies/Don’t wanna go through hell/Just to get to paradise.â€
â€¨Bringing information strikingly missing from today’s headlines to the forefront of attention, â€œForgive andForgetâ€ challenges media consumers to reassess what they’re being told and instead to refocus on our shared goal to â€œbuild a stronger tomorrow,â€ and finally â€œput our hands out, and our arms down.â€ This is the kind of news more people need to hear.
