Cousin – Rise (Martyrs Circus) – [Video]

Edmonton, AB – It can’t have been easy growing up between Slave Lake, Alberta and Lebanon but that experience has made Cousin feel the unrest in the Middle East all the more strongly. Besides raising funds to send clean drinking water and medication to war-torn regions, he’s also had near brushes with the violence in Beirut. He tells us, “I feel that having these types of experiences really makes me appreciate the type of life we are able to live in Canada, but also maintain a strong connection to my homeland and like to document the type of life so many people are living in that area.” Check out his video for “Rise,” which makes commentary on what’s been going on this year in Egypt, Syria and Libya as history changes and shapes this MC’s artistic views. Video by Jordan Willey of Smashtbenz Ent.
