The rapper and hip hop producer known as the Infinite MC has released his latest official video, “Never Hurt Me Soul.” The track has been proudly published on the Infinite Records independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. It is the title track of his latest EP album, “Never Hurt Me Soul One Man Revolution.” An animated representation of the themes and struggles featured in his music, “Never Hurt Me Soul” by the Infinite MC is proof that this Egyptian-American rapper is more than just an entertainer. He's a revolutionary.
Separating the Infinite MC from the largest portion of rap musicians is his lyric content. Lines written and performed by Infinite are as notable for what he puts in as they are for what he keeps out.
“When I was seven years old I heard Will Smith,” writes the Infinite MC. “Realizing that rap could be positive without explicit content or demoralizing lyrics, I decided to become a rapper myself. I had a natural talent for free styling. Singing was my original passion, but the rhyme patterns of hip hop fascinated me. I noticed the potential for verbose lyrics with deep meaning.”
Profundity is at the heart of everything the Infinite MC releases, and his new “Never Hurt Me Soul” video is the latest example of this.
“The song was inspired by the first year of the Egyptian Revolution I experienced in Alexandria, Egypt,” he writes. “I started writing the song on the one-year anniversary of the start of the revolution. The cartoon I made is a metaphor for all the assassins revolutionists have faced throughout history.”
Starring in the animated hip hop video, naturally, is Infinite, himself.
“The main character was how I imagined a visual representation of the Infinite MC would look like. Named Neōterikós, I battle assassins that would stop a world revolution. The name is the Greek origin for neo and neoteric, the word I use for my genre of music.”
Loyal fans of the Infinite MC will not be surprised to learn that anti-war sentiments are the reason for “Never Hurt Me Soul” both lyrically and visually. As the artist puts it himself:
“The point of the video is that peace is the real goal of revolution.”
