Who’s fault is poverty.
Can it be a personal decision? sometimes.
Generational poverty? sure.
I’m not super interested in who’s fault it is, but I do like to help people out of it.
There are TONS of reasons that people are impoverished and plenty of people to blame but I haven’t heard anyone talking about how our cultures rap-stars help keep people in poverty.
I believe people should stop pointing the finger at policy, politicians, legislation, and lack of funds for the overwhelmingly impoverished communities in our nation. Start knocking on Busta Rhymes door. and Kanye’s door. And Lil Waynes door. and 2 chaniz door. and Jay-Z’s door, Why?
Because they are, what I would personally consider, the “Tru” enablers of poverty. These celebrities show my kids what’s valuable, what makes a person, how to interact with each other, with girls, what makes someone a man… And it is crap.
Watch this video and come back..
Here is my theory: With a consistent output of music like “Thank you,” “I Luv Dem Strippers,” and “I am a God“. These rappers will successfully keep a large majority of my students disillusioned with rolex watches, Hennessy bottles, polo logos, Louis Vuitton belt buckles, True Religion jeans and Cartiers with the dark tint.
I wrote this poem about why I do what I do that you can purchase off of iTunes if you enjoy it.
I’m picking up the mess
Two Chainz, see you’re the best
Not many people can talk about strippers
and claim to be “different” at the same time
I got my own struggles with purity
But, I also know I got 300 kids looking at me
Brace for impact
it’s a weight on my shoulders
But I can handle it
I’ll own that
They’re gonna imitate
But I’ll initiate
I’m not a rap-star but I can show my kids honor
I tour 10 months a year with teachers
and that’s just for starters
I can show my dedication
Model being a father
I don’t need a mic or stage lights
They burn up
They blow out
My whole crowd…It’s sold out.
I aint’ fueled by the fame
I aint’ fooled by the money
Every word is love and that’s why the can’t stop me
You got my whole school rocking your songs Two Chainz
But no more of them are going to college
More of them are facing struggles
Cause they want sex and entertainment
Instead of being men hard workers and fathers
See cause you’re so dope
It’s common knowledge
So busy helping with nothing
Wasting verse after verse
with billions watching
And all you can muster up is noticing your ceiling’s missing
International exposure, middle finger up.
It’s garbage, join your competition
Kanye, the world doesn’t need any more Gods.
At least he doesn’t claim to be different
Cause he’s not
Got whole songs dedicated to bringing down women
Saying the types of things that would put a normal guy in prison
It’s a messed up story but I’ma Help clean it up
Call it like Wiz Khalifa, cause I’ma work hard
But I’ll play harder to unscrew what y’all screwed up
My kids deserve better than you
My kids deserve better than this
I’m bringing some thing new to this generation of Kids
