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