MD Features his younger brother Daniel Budram AKA Dan D and older sister, Indira Budram aka Ladie Indie, in his new music video, “Put Away”. It speaks to the crime & violence disease that’s plaguing Belize & other nations. This Video is also one of a series of videos from the ‘Love Better: End Violence’ campaign Roots and Honor’s creatives is getting ready to launch. MD invites the listeners to consider how many dreams, purposes, doctors, cures that will never be manifested because they are buried in the cemetery. To all the ‘Gun-Man’ think about the value of your life & like Dan D says, “If you live by the gun, you die by the gun” SO WE URGE YOU TO ‘PUT DOWN’ THE GUN. MD looked into the issues of his culture and he encourages the gangs & those susceptible to committing crimes and violence to STOP, think about their lives, put down the gun and value life. Put Away is for all those who are ready to end the culture of death and instead give life and love to others.

MD believes that Music is a tool to communicate a value system. He not only uses music to convey positivity to the community, but he is also an active member in the Rotary Club of Belmopan, Director of Legacy Youth Movement, and Founder of Legacy Fire Chamber. Articulating the position of youth in Belize and advocating for greater opportunities has been a powerful motivator for MD and shines throughout his musical discourse. MD’s artistry pulls greatly from his experience working with youths and aims to encourage this generation to speak about the issues that really matter and to address social injustice.
