      Rapper Pharoahe Monch is attempting to shed light on the topic of gun violence with the video for his new single "Gun Draws."

      The complete version of the clip, which has been deemed too graphic for regular video outlets, debuted today (Jan. 3) on AllHipHop.com.

      Monch, who uses the song to examine what he feels is "the desensitization we currently have towards senseless violence," expresses his views from the perspective of a bullet.

      "As a creative writer, I like to ask questions. What would a bullet say if it had a voice to speak its mind?," said the Queens lyricist, who refused to edit his video down for the mainstream. "It's challenging to write from different perspectives, especially if it's an object that has the power to kill. This is my effort to provoke and awaken discussion about violence, whether perpetrated by or committed against us."

      "Gun Draws" is in the same vein as "Stray Bullet," a classic single Monch recorded as a member of Hip-Hop group Organized Konfusion.

      The track is taken from the rapper's forthcoming SRC/Universal Motown album Desire, which is due in stores this spring.

      Fans who can't wait for the release can listen to Monch's latest mixtape Awakening, which is available now.
