Pill submits video to U.N. Testify Project

Pill is no stranger to Atlanta's gentrification issue. (For proof, see this CL feature.) Knowing this, the sister of his former manager Derek Schklar, who, according to XXL, "works in the human rights field," encouraged Pill to submit a short video on the matter to the Testify Project, which will submit stories of various human rights violations to the United Nations.

If Pill's video is chosen (XXL indicates that it already has been), it will be screened, along with other finalists, on November 25 for U.N. delegates in Geneva, Switzerland. It's part of the United States' Universal Periodic Review. Don't know what any of that really means? Me either. Gotta hand it to Pill, though, for his enthusiasm in tackling such a troubling and under-explored issue that plagues not only Atlanta but countless American cities. If Crib Notes gave a Humanitarian Rapper of the Year award, we'd give it to him.
