Christian artist and standout battle rapper Th3 Saga has landed an incredible opportunity with both Pharrell and Adidas for their ‘Don’t Be Quiet Please’ campaign. In conjunction with the upcoming US Open tournament, the campaign is taking place in NYC where Pharrell has partnered with Adidas sponsored tennis athletes Garbiñe Muguruza, Angelique Kerber, Sascha Zverev, Dominic Thiem and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to host a tennis clinic, refurbish an aging Tennis court, and launch a scholarship program.
At the launch event, Pharrell delivered a manifesto of the campaign sitting atop one of ten tennis umpire chairs which have now been placed throughout the city. Here’s what he had to say,
“Every tennis match starts with the same two words: ‘Quiet Please.’
But change can be noisy and our love can transform anything.
Outside the court we will let our voices be heard as loud as we can.
If you see the potential for good, speak up.
Together, we can change the game for the better.”
– Pharrell Williams
Special guests were then announced for the umpire chairs with Th3 Saga being chosen as one of them. We caught up with him to ask about how the opportunity came together, how he’s feeling about it, and if he had any other remarks or encouragement for others. Listen to his response below as he explains how battle rap got him noticed by Adidas execs and how blessed he was to proclaim the love of Christ in this way.Check out campaign photos below and let us know what you think in the comments!
