David Cash's "City of Angels," is a sobering look at the war that's going on in the inner city neighborhoods of LA that people tend to ignore because of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. With hard hitting, thought provoking lyrics like "It's a long way from heaven/In the city where the Angel's from/From the streets to Hollywood dreams/In the city of LA/," Cash reminds us that in the place nicknamed the "City of Angels," it's far from heavenly as many continue to fight day to day just to survive the mean streets of LA far from the spotlight of celebs.
The video is simple, but effective and gets its message across with a look at the "other" side of LA where life is much different than many of u can imagine. With a throng of peeps from his streets, Cash's video doesn't add any extras that aren't needed to distract from the main message. Though the song itself has a great beat and is musically solid, it makes the viewer/listener want to think more than dance, accomplishing its purpose with excellence and simplicity in a well -conceived video.
