Yesterday, a friend posted a rap on their facebook page and it came up on my home page. It was eight minutes long and usually would be too long to tempt me to click on the play button. However, the title caught my attention. “Man vs. God/Official Mime Video.” I went ahead and clicked and it held my attention right from the start. Very well done. It made me ask myself again something I’ve wondered in the past. Why don’t rappers rap about subjects that will uplift people and help them to have more respect for themselves and others instead of all of the trash talk and venting of anger?
So, rappers, why don’t you do that? You hold a LOT of power in your hands to help people or to make them descend into a deeper pit. Use that ability you have to make this world a better place! Just saying.
