SHI 360 is back after taking a break to complete his masters degree. Shi 360's long awaited international single, 'Forgive & Forget' off the upcoming 'Shalom Haters' album on Shemspeed/Shi 360 Music. The new single arrives on the global hip hop scene at a time when the media has been astoundingly silent in response to recent rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. The song is a desperate plea for truth in media reporting as well as a cry to stop the seemingly endless violence in the Middle East.

“Forgive and Forget” reaffirms both sides’ shared human suffering, acknowledging “I see your pain/I know you see my pain” and urges people to rise up against media-perpetuated lies – “How do you think/The cameraman is close to the fire? The work is for hire/Showing what they want to inspire.” SHI 360’s hard-hitting lyrics are balanced by a piano-driven beat and a melodic verse sung by Harte, a female vocalist who has previously collaborated with Killah Priest from Wu-Tang Clan. In her soulful, attention-grabbing voice, Harte drives SHI 360’s message home as she sings “I don’t want no struggles/I don’t want no lies/Don’t wanna go through hell/Just to get to paradise.”

Bringing information strikingly missing from today’s headlines to the forefront of attention, “Forgive andForget” challenges media consumers to reassess what they’re being told and instead to refocus on our shared goal to “build a stronger tomorrow,” and finally “put our hands out, and our arms down.” This is the kind of news more people need to hear.
