I promised I would give a lot more visibility to Christian music and particularly Christian hip-hop on Africamusiclaw.com. Hip-hop is my number one choice when it comes to music. I’ve given visibility to many groups and persons over time. Christian hip-hop still struggles to get the spotlight. On this website, it definitely has a home, anytime, anyday.
To the video and topic at hand, I have a firm belief and theory that young men of today, speaking strictly about the USA, are like de-clawed cats. It’s like many of our men have forgotten the essence and what it means to be a man/men. In fact many, have no clue what that even means. They lack convictions in their beliefs, they lack vision and leadership and just seem to exist. It is truly very disheartening to watch. To a large extent, my generation is the generation that has grown up without fathers and an alarming statistics of single mothers raising children. Nevertheless, at some point, that gets old and we have to look within and find the courage to be different. There are so many ways to spin this post. But for right now, let me just say I appreciate The 116 Fam for their newest and latest video calling on men, especially black men, to MAN UP!
There is so much to be said and I know future facts will create for compelling discussions on this topic.
For now, watch below.
Key highlights from the video
- Time to separate the boys from the men
- Time to stop eating cookies and start eating meat
- Time to stop looking at where you came from and MAN UP
- Where are all the men at? It seems like they are lost
