Jennifer Bryant aka Classy Silhouette released a remix ep for her inspirational song titled " Keep Trying" in 2012 The Keep Trying Remixes EP has five different mixes all produced by singer songwriter producer Jennifer Bryant aka Classy Silhouette. She later released one of the remixes (Keep Trying Hip Hop Mix) as a single and released a lyrics video for it. The song is meant to inspire people who may have hit rough times to not become discouraged but to Keep Trying. The singing siren felt a need to deliver such a message because it seems to be common for hip hop artists to try to ridicule one another for not having as much money as the other or for not having as many material things. It seems that once one reaches a certain level of success instead of inspiring others to reach for their own goals and maybe helping them do it...they flash money and say I have this, I have that, and you don't. Classy Silhouette decided not to go that route with this song. Instead she reaches out to those who are less fortunate and instead of ridiculing them for their misfortunes but encourages them with this message of hope to not be discouraged by the evil deeds of others but to reach up to the heavens and grab more hope and keep trying.
" I am glad that I have learned humility. I know what it is like to have lots of money and material things and I also know what it is like to not have anything and have to humble my spirit and ask for help and rise again. I believe that in life there are supposed to be lessons learned and if you learn them quickly...you will quickly move to the next level in your life. I learned that when you have financial blessings you are supposed to share with those less fortunate because as quickly as you rose...that's how quickly you can fall and if you were cruel to the people who were less fortunate while you were up...if and when you fall...there won't be anyone there for you. You will then pay your karmic debt. So I just wanted to put a song out that was not promoting negativity. A song that is not teaching people to mistreat people if they are not as fortunate as them. Why would I put a song put making fun of people who are poor if those are the same people who might buy my music or save up to come see me perform in person?" says Classy Silhouette. " I give change to the beggars on the street. I don't play those kind of games. Sometimes you get tested. And if you pass the test you get some kind of blessing or opportunity and if you don't... Well then you take losses. I'm not saying you have to be a fool and let people take advantage of you but it's not wise to become a narcissist over a little bit of money. You can tell the difference between people who have never had anything before and people who have. The people who haven't had anything turn into to monsters when they get something....they become arrogant,....vain. Announcing what they bought and how much it cost. The ones who have had and still do...they kind of know the rules in keeping your wealth. I'm not in the business of seeing others down. I know I can't save the world but I can help by spreading a positive message and inspiring that person that may be down on their luck to not give up because you never know what is in store for you In the future."
The Keep Trying Hip Hop Mix was released as a single in 2013 and is available on iTunes when you search her stage name "Classy Silhouette" The Keep Trying Hip Hop Mix official video was not released until 2014. "When my computer was hacked I was disappointed because I saw people taking my concepts and using them in a derogatory manner. I guess that is what they thought I was going to do with the images, and footage they saw on my computer but they were wrong. After a while I decided to continue to move forward with my creative projects because even though they thought they were stealing my ideas...they actually weren't .Some of the stuff I saw out there was funny. All I could do was shake my head, laugh to myself and say wow...that's what they came up with? Anyway I do the best I can to deliver my message, to share my vision with my listeners. My artwork is not meant to be vain. It is meant to inspire my listeners and followers to keep working toward their goals from an entrepreneurial perspective. I even posted the image on my Facebook page a few years ago. I had actually filmed part of the video in 2012 before I realized I got hacked and some of the other stuff I shot during a trip to Philadelphia in 2014"
