This 2 part video “A Beautiful Song” & “Bless You” chronicles the pain and aftermath of Alfred Banks’ brother Orlandas Banks’ death after battling Schizophrenia. As Alfred prepares for the funeral, he writes a heartfelt letter & reminisces on all the good & bad times they shared.
Alfred plans to help shed a light on such a stigmatized topic in our society and reach out to others who are experiencing the same struggles everyday. This video will be followed by an EP titled “A Beautiful Prelude” set to be released on March 20th, 2016 in honor of the 2 year anniversary of his passing.
The Hood Hippie also got the chance to get an exclusive interview with Banks before his recent performance at Offbeat. The podcast for it will be dropping later today. Be on the lookout for it via the blog and Soundcloud.com/thehoodhippiems.
