Saint Louis, MO ó Hatred, thatís what hip hop artist Thiísl (pronounced Thih-zull) feels about crack. His new music video featuring the song ďI Hate You,Ē tells the story of how crack cocaine rips lives and families apart.

Filmed in Jacksonville, FL and directed by Eshon Burgundy of Space Cherry Films, the videoís story is not fictional or third-party. It reflects an honest and gritty visual of Thiíslís own story. Growing up on the streets of St. Louis, he lived a life consumed by drugs and thugs. Just like his own life, this video shows how his family was torn apart by addictions to cocaine. His cousin was taken away from his mother; another cousin was shot and killed by a Thiíslís own friend. Strong and passionate, ďI Hate YouĒ can be found on his album Chronicles of an X-Hustler.

Thiísl brings a dose of reality, where mainstream hip hop glamorizes a gangster lifestyle. ďNobody is telling the whole story. Nobody talks about the feeling you get from selling your mom dope. They donít talk about the feeling of sitting in a jail cell, feeling like theyíre going to get life,Ē declares Thiísl. ďI felt like it was my duty to the culture of hip hop to show them the other side of the coin.Ē

Life selling crack gives misleading money and power. When Thiíslís own friend killed his cousin, he was faced with a stark wake-up call. For the first time, he realized how crazy his lifestyle was and the impact it had on other people. He cleaned up and turned his life around. Now, he brings his message of hatred toward crack back to his neighborhood and the people still in the same kind of situations. ďI feel like Iím a voice for people who donít have a voice in those situations or those too ashamed to admit this is how they really feel,Ē explains Thiísl.
