On Memorial Day, Brooklyn’s own hip hop artist and producer Kota the Friend released the official music video for his song “Vietnam,” featured on his acclaimed album “Lyrics to Go Volume 5.” The video serves as a heartfelt homage to his grandfather, who fought in the Vietnam War, and reflects on the broader sacrifices made by veterans of the conflict.

The song “Vietnam” combines Kota the Friend’s sharp lyrical skills with deep, soulful beats, painting a vivid picture of his grandfather’s wartime experiences and the often-overlooked struggles faced by many veterans. Through his music, Kota offers a personal narrative that not only acknowledges his grandfather’s bravery but also casts a light on the unseen battles veterans carry home.

“This song is very close to my heart,” Kota expressed. “It reflects the stories I grew up hearing about my grandfather’s experiences in Vietnam. With this video, I want to honor him and all the veterans who served their country under incredibly challenging circumstances.”

Choosing Memorial Day for the release underscores the song’s message of remembrance and respect for those who have endured the horrors of war. It’s a poignant reminder of how historical events like the Vietnam War continue to resonate personally for many, including artists like Kota who channel these narratives into their art.

The music video for “Vietnam” is now available on Kota the Friend’s official YouTube channel, and the track can be streamed on all major platforms. This release not only enriches Kota’s musical repertoire but also contributes to the broader dialogue about the legacy of veterans and the ongoing impact of their sacrifices.
