Quan Remembers Tamir Rice In New Video Feat. Pusha T via Billboard.com

Many people around the world were deeply affected by the tragedy of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was fatally shot by police in 2014 after cops mistook his toy gun for a real weapon. But for Quan, a father who once lost his own son, the story hit a bit closer to home.

The official Chip Stackin’-directed video for his poignant Pusha T-assisted cut "All On Him" recounts the tragic story with a different ending.   

The concept I chose for this video was the Tamir Rice tragedy, because I can’t fully understand why those cops shot that baby. However, in my video he lives instead of dies. We were able to save him. The same way God saved us many times over. The key to the change is peace, great music and God. ‘Cause it’s all on Him. My friend Max profit who plays one of the police officers, was killed during the shooting of this video. That kid [at the end of the video with his hands up] is my son, an angel.
