Check out the music video for “Stephanie (SuperUgly)” posted below.

Several kids who appear in the video currently attend Taft Middle School.

Bullying scenes in the music video caught the attention of a Taft Middle School teacher, Emily Ray, who has invited Jabee to speak to sixth-graders about his experiences as part of an assembly at 2 p.m. Friday.

“I’m going to talk about the effect of bullying, what happened to me, why I did the video that way, and how bullying can take many forms, even if it’s a girl to a guy and there is no physical bullying,” Jabee (Williams) said in a news release.

“Stephanie (SuperUgly)” was produced by EL-P and features vocals by Carlitta Durand.
