I finally watched this video!! Excellent work! I love the message in the rap. Conscious.
So i saw this and i just had to post it. I loove loove its message.
I hope it uplifts you the way it did me 🙂
I wrote this at a hip hop workshop i was hosting for high school kids and we were all asked to write a piece on whatever struck our fancy. Tell me what you think.
I am who i am, and i am AFRICA; beautiful, wild and free.
Full of colour, drama and peace. Beautiful.
As Ludacris once sang: the best women all reside in Africa!
Woman, bearer of children, carer of children, husband and elderly, sufferer of crimes real or imagined,
I carry it all on my shoulders. I am the strongest person i/you will ever know.
I am ME. I am YOU.
In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.
This rang out to me to be true.
Makes me think about all the decisions i’ve made if i could do them over… Would i? or wouldn’t i? Why so?
Some yes and some no! But i wouldn’t be me would i?
