Zion I – Tech $ (prod. Mikos Da Gawd) (Music Video)

@ZionI releases music video for hard but analytically refelective track, “Tech $.” Zion I credits the writing of the track as a response to the rapid gentrification of Oakland, and wanted to display its effects on Oakland’s families in the video. Directed by Anthony for Lightworkers Republic, the video takes place in an Oakland home where a family is overlooking rental applications and listings while packing up to move. In the song he comments on the gentrification and tech boom forcing long standing Oakland residents out of their homes. In a call for outreach and involvement, Zion I asks listeners to comment their experiences with gentification on the video. The song bumps but at the same time still promotes a concern that needs to be assessed.
