Here's the video for "Kids Get Away" from Jamaican Queens. Singer/songwriter Ryan Spencer said he drew inspiration from a vicious attack a friend of his suffered in Detroit. Says Spencer:
"I wrote this song to myself as a reminder that I live in a very dangerous place and that I shouldn't be so naive. Violence is everywhere, and though I'm more likely to be victimized in Detroit than almost anywhere else, this city also has so much going for it that no other place I've ever been does. The possibility of violence is no reason to flee what I feel to be the best place I've ever lived. This song is a reminder to myself of that. Be careful, but don't give in to fear."
