Hip Hop Duo, Al & Stro Call 100,000 Absentee Fathers to Action with a Message to "Help Her Out"

Share Article

Following the June 13th, 2010 digital release of their new single, "Help Her Out," the duo states there is no better time for fathers to recommit themselves to family.

"Stand Up and Man Up"

The message? “Stand up and man up” to parental responsibility. Many agree the message of change couldn’t have come at a better time.

When listeners hear the lyrics, “Help her out/Do somethin’/Why your baby mama ridin’ the bus?” the initial reaction is usually a chuckle. In group settings, intense debate usually follows. And that’s OK to Producer-Artists, Al & Stro because they know they’ve got your attention. Their topical hip hop single, Help Her Out, aims to open up a dialogue about the growing epidemic of absentee fathers in our communities – and move some feet in the process.

On the heels of the song's June 13, 2010 digital release, the first and only planned collaboration between the two artists, Al & Stro are going beyond the lesson in the music to call 100,000 fathers to action. The message? “Stand up and man up” to parental responsibility. Many agree the message of change couldn’t have come at a better time.    

The Help Her Out Project not only calls on fathers to strengthen their commitment to their children, but also advocates the support of families in need by encouraging members of the community to become a mentor to a child in need or a friend to a struggling single parent. Fathers and supporters of the mission can add their name to the project online at http://www.alandstro.com to become one of the 100,000 taking the pledge to accept, encourage and maintain parental responsibility in our communities.

Help Her Out and the Help Her Out Remix featuring Coinz is currently available via digital release worldwide. Friends, fans and advocates can visit their website, MySpace and Facebook fan pages for more information on the music, the message and the movement.
