I Have a Dream (Youtube Rap)
This song was truly inspired by Martin Luther King. Sometimes I still watch his famous speech and it gives me goosebumps. I don’t think people really realise how fucked up the world is because everyone is too busy living their life. The subject I address most is obviously the financial gap between billionaires and lower class/extremely poor people. It’s now more relevant than ever with Coronavirus. I even forgot to record two of decent lines about it:
“It’s so sick, how can people be so rich, they made 600 billion during COVID.”
It’s truly sickening. I am not against extremely wealthy people living an ridiculously luxurious life. But there comes a point where it is too extreme. Isn’t 200 million dollars enough to live an incredible life? And let’s say 200 million dollars isn’t enough for one human being, what about 900 million dollars? You guys realize Jeff Bezos has a net worth of 186.5 BILLION dollars. That’s Billion, with a B. The economy in America is completely broken. It needs a Cap. It needs a wealth tax, but law makers are probably busy getting bribed by billionaires. If you are interested in learning more about our fucked up economy, I strongly suggest you to watch this.
There are much more informative videos but this one is funny, and informative. It’s from “ The Patriot Act” from Netflix and it’s very easy to watch.
Regarding my lines about jewellery, I strongly believe the high end Jewellery market is RETARDED. Let’s say you take an average person and show him 10 pieces of jewellery. 9 of them cost 20,000 dollars, and one of them is costs 2.5 million dollars. I’d bet my whole bank account 99 percent of people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. So why do people buy 3 million dollar diamond rings? Quite frankly, so they can say “I have a 3 million dollar ring.” Or in other words “Look how successful I am. Look at how much better I am at life than you.”
“I have a dream that one day we’ll feed poor people, instead of wasting billions to feed our EGO.”
Let’s say Drake was to get a tattoo on his neck that said “I have more money than you.” The media would shit their pants. Most of his fans would call him a douchebag. I view buying a million dollar necklace as much worse. A tattoo would only cost 200 dollars. His necklace costs 1 million dollars. And its saying the exact same thing. I’m not calling out Drake specifically, its all celebrities. Even Jennifer Lopez. Humanity is fucked because of our will to power and obsessions over our social status.
I will never understand society’s fascination with “bling bling.” The only way I would be a fan of high end jewellery is if it was owned by the government. If a decent government kept 80 percent of profits from high end jewellery then I’d be a fan. Idiots could waste their money and the government would have tens of billions of dollars to help with poverty in America and people starving to death. Everyone would be happy. But that isn’t the case and it never will be.
As for most men being homophobic, it’s true. Don’t think you aren’t homophobic simply because you don’t believe gay people should be stoned to death. Every time you call someone a faggot or make derogatory comments towards gay people, you are being homophobic. Yeah when I was a dumb teenager I used to occasionally insult someone I was fighting with and call him a faggot. I’m sorry to the LGBT community. I was a dumb kid that grew up in a homophobic world. But I took the word faggot out of my dictionary a long time ago, and you will never hear it in any of my rap songs. Obviously I used it in this song, but it was to defend gay people instead of make fun of them.
I understand the end of the song is tough to digest but it’s true. It’s stupid to dream about a world with no suicide, no starvation, no sexual abuse, etc. That will never happen. But I do dream about SIGNIFICANTLY LESS suicide, less starvation, less sexual abuse, less racism, and so on. This would require a lot of talented, morally driven individuals, compared to every powerful person falling into their ego disease, but I believe every person is capable of making a difference.
But ask yourselves, when was the last time you did community service? When was the last time you donated 5 dollars to charity? When was the last time you tried to make a positive impact on someone’s life? Most of society isn’t nearly as compassionate as they think they are. Everyone thinks they’re a good person because if they see someone get shot in the face they will cry and feel bad for their family. But what about when it comes to actually taking actions to make a difference?
Helping out at a homeless shelter isn’t more fun than watching Netflix, but it’s obviously much more meaningful.. It’s a dog eat dog world and I needed to record this song in order to express that.
