What do I care about bling and hoes?
Well, not much. I used to think that rap music was all the same and NOT for me. But then...
My 14 year old step-son introduced me to some artists that actually had something to say that was of substance. Artists like Atmosphere, Tech Nine, heck, even Eminem!
So I started listening more closely... When I realized I was wrong to dismiss a whole genre, I was inspired to write this song: Spread the Word.
(Only to have my oldest son say: "What?! You're gonna rap now, dad?" ... No, at my age it's called spoken word!)
The experience was a great reminder to always keep an open mind and heart, because by putting others in a box, we're putting ourselves in one, too...
And I don't want to live in a box.
Can you get behind that? If so, please do spread the word
Peace and much love,
P.S. Btw for the video, we just set up my iPhone with an app called "Lapse It", and I started writing...
