RAP- A MISUNDERSTOOD ART FORM The reality is that rap music is greatly misunderstood. The media often portrays rap music as negative and focuses on rap music more when it is related to something undesirable. Many media stories identify rap music as a catalyst in problems such as teen pregnancy, crime or some other negative social issue that existed long before rap music became prevalent. The truth of the matter is that there is rap music that is positive and can serve the purpose of improving social consciousness by increasing awareness of some of the issues that many residents of our nation’s inner cities face. Just because a rap artist speaks of less than desirable subjects in his or her music does not mean that they intend to corrupt the minds of the audience. Rap music is entertainment and should not be treated any differently than any other form of entertainment out there. The bottom line is that all rap music is not degenerate and consideration should be taken when analyzing the message that the music is presenting.

Flesh N Bone Dedication song captures the essence of Tha Crossroads! Music video review
Flesh N Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony has really captured the essence of Tha Crossroads and the Bone thug original sound on his new hit single Dedication. First of all the thing that stood out to me was the way the beat sounded. It has the old school Bone thug style to it. And it grabs you right away with waves of emotions and nostalgia. Also the music video really brings back flashbacks of Tha Crossroads era as well.
Who Is Tom Macdonald?
Tom Macdonald is a fully independent artist whose main genre is rap. Tom Macdonald was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in September, 1988. Tom has often stated that his first hip hop influence was a CD by Tupac Shakur called All Eyes On Me. Tom picked up the CD when his dad gave him some money to pick something out and he was hooked. Tom admits though that the biggest musical influence on him growing up was Eminem. A kid on the bus had stolen his brother's Eminem record and let Tom listen. Tom was surprised to see a blonde haired blue eyed white guy just like himself dominating the hip hop genre. Tom also had a love for Classic Rock but as he grew older he discovered he didn't have the voice for singing Rock songs but his poetic writing talents began to flourish. Tom's first career move was actually professional wrestling, but music was where his heart was. Tom by his own admission had a terrible mental break down after partying non-stop for over a year. His heavy alcohol and drug use over the course of about 18 months finally came to a head when he woke up one day and couldn't keep his balance. Frightened by this experience Tom descended into depression and anxiety and by his own admission thought often of suicide. The dark times were not to last though, thanks to the persistence and love of his now girlfriend Nova Pahloek better known as Nova Rockefeller. They finally met up and decided to make music together. At this point they were living in South Central Los Angeles and were so broke they often had to choose rent over utilities. They had to keep their food cold by running an extension cord from their fridge to an outlet in their neighbors garage. Tom's big break came when he decided to write a song that didn't fit the hip hop status quo. As a matter of fact his first widely successful single "Dear Rappers", which he wrote while smoking the last half of his last cigarette, actually calls out hip hop for its negative cultural influence. Tom had to borrow money from his parents and friends to get the song produced but in the end it paid off. Tom has been writing producing and recording hits ever since. Occasionally Tom's fully independent art even knocks mainstream artists out of their spots on iTunes charts. Tom Macdonald quickly gained a loyal fanbase by rapping about things America's new heavy politically correct culture doesn't want people to talk about. His most well known controversial single is "Fake Woke" which was actually featured in a segment on Fox News. It wouldn't be fair though to give Tom all the credit as Nova, an insanely talented videographer, directs shoots and edits all his music videos. Tom's loyal fanbase has been dubbed Hangover Gang and they are fiercely loyal. Not everyone likes Tom though, sometimes the truth about race and politics is a hard pill to swallow and a lot of people get offended instead of creating a conversation around the topics. Tom's writing and beat producing skills are becoming harder for the music industry to ignore and Tom has no intention of letting them forget he's there. In Spring of 2021 Tom won a beat produced by Eminem at auction for $100,000. Just weeks later Tom dropped the track "Dear Slim" which pays homage to his childhood idol and also points out all the parallels in their careers. Tom points out that they both got their start in controversy and both overcame addictions and had counter culture followings in addition to being the epitome of white men in America with their blue eyes and blonde hair. One of Tom's biggest achievements are his albums which are CD format only and up until recently were signed personally by Tom himself. Haters can say what they want but there is something to be said about someone who can sell thousands of copies of a record on a format that is considered obsolete. Tom doesn't just write controversial music though, some of his non controversial hits include "Castles" "I Can't Sleep" "I Wish" and "I Don't Drink". It's my admittedly biased opinion that Tom Macdonald is one of the most influential artists of our time. I hope after reading this you're encouraged to check out his music you can find his songs with music videos on YouTube or without the video on most major streaming platforms including iTunes and Spotify.
