I heard that the Kanye West Mercy video dropped and I wanted to check it out and do my due diligence. Kanye West Mercy visuals are insane in the video along with beat. In a culture that places emphasis on status, chicks, sex, luxury, drugs, trapping and convenience just to name a few are we really going to accept this as status quo… like him and his peers are pimping us to buy their music and eat toxin? Am I perfect, NO? So why the hate (if that’s what you want to call it)? Why do we promote dysfunction and not showing people how to function as God has formed them to function?
More Than Music?
What makes a dope metaphor or simile?
Does dope beats, amazing visuals and punchlines justify us supporting music that treads on morality, good rapport and an honest living? Just a question…. because it appears as if our Culture over the last couple of decades has accepted socially disrespectful music for the sake of YOLO, fun, I don’t give a **** and more.
I didn’t grow up like this. And I refuse to believe that my peers, colleagues and a younger generation accepts these elements in life as normal. I’m not arguing against creativity or even the listening of dope and amazing music. I just think we need to be mindful and socially responsible for the food we are feeding the generations coming behind us.
Food for Thought
We know excessively eating McDonald’s pink slime is bad for us but we do it anyway. Somewhere down the line… somehow we have to wake up!
