The Button

Latrell James’ new video and single “The Button” is an honest look and reflection of his life and surroundings growing up in Boston. But it’s more than that.

James, with the help of director Jose Rodriguez, paints us familiar picture; but his conclusion is universal. Thousands of people struggle with things that a lot of the rest of us might not be able to wrap our minds around. Things like addiction, or economic hardship, or any type of hardship really, it’s not always something you can control, but you can control how you deal with it. Whether that’s going to work at a 9-to-5, or turning to a life of crime, the decision you make is your own. It’s not always easy walk that knife.
