I Love My HBCU

South Carolina State University sophomore Keith Gillard, known as KG the Artist, is helping raise money for his HBCU through music. KG, a dean’s list student studying mass communications wrote the original song “#HBCU” as an anthem for SCSU, and Historically Black Colleges Universities as a whole.

The anthem features the SCSU’s Marching 101 Band and is intended to send a positive message about Historically Black Colleges to the public. If you are a current HBCU student or alumni, you can definitely relate to this song. Gillard says he was inspired to write the song after the university’s accreditation problems.

The track was executive produced by Stay Focused Music Group , an independent record label founded and operated by 4 South Carolina State alumni. Along with KG the Artist, they recognized the need to help raise the morale of the school and the community it thrives in. All sales of the song will be donated to the South Carolina State University Alumni Fund.

The single “#HBCU” (feat. SCSU Marching 101), produced by M.I.C. Beatz of Soul Architects is available for purchase on iTunes:

KG performed his HBCU Anthem at the 2015 South Carolina State University homecoming concert. Opening up for the likes of Dej Loaf and Young Dolph, KG stole the show with his HBCU Anthem. The song has become popular among SCSU alumni, people who attended historically black college/universities, and anyone who loves Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
