I heard this song Rainbow Man by Busy P and thought for some reason that maybe a rap could be performed to this track. Taking some Humongous amount of time off I had actually typed up what I thought at the time was an okay poem. It's mainly about the mainstream music industry perpetuating this idea that the content of artists reflect how societies are today, when in actuality their forcing an ideal of how people should be; Famous, glamorous, treat others like crap, or like you have the rich lifestyle and money, and therefore, the power. I guess the positive attitude may be enticing to the person who feels down about their life situation, but I still think there are a few lies in there. Such as fame should be the main aspiration for today's people, instead of being someone that is needed more in society, such as Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, Technicians, even a chef. I feel like I've come so close to getting the right words for it, but I must admit it is tougher than it seems (credit to the artists that write their own lyrics lol). So, I tried a rap, because it gives me more room to put a lot of words especially when the song has a lot of beats allowing the words to synch and therefore get a flow going (Hip Hop 101!)

Anyways, enough stalling, here is my poem:

I’m sick of rappers rapping like you don’t know what rap music is

when we all know they have no better clever use for it

I thought they maybe kicked the nagging habit by now

Because somehow nobody knows why you began doing it


By the time your career is over you don’t know what happened

You finish yapping stupid verbs and now you have to go back to

That thing you do

when money just won’t work out for you

And you’re never through because everything you do is never new,


You need to be willing to fill in every little syllable

Like an credited individual known for using every literal

Antique of musical Technique you can hear it too

If you let you mind teach your ears what it should listen to

Give a hoot n holler if you don’t care about being cool

Or the Vapors from the nitpicky little greedy fools

This kind of truth is one they will never listen to

Because Slacking off is about all they ever knew


Simon says be a deviant too evil to be evened with

And weed out your friends like bunch of sleazy greedy miscreants

It’s hard being in the busy world and be seen in it

And seeing it for it’s cheesiness seems to be even less easy it’s

really a pity to hear a million and fifty whack tracks that sound shitty

top billboards and make stacks I mean really?

I am not even being mean it’s just me

Thinking through the busy streets

Through the beat of Busy P


If you got the beats and the words then you need to really SPEAK

Before the voice loses it’s touch grows old and WEAK

I can see you vent through hashtags to let you BREATHE

But if you don’t speak for others you won’t have a voice to KEEP


People call me an oddity

probably over competent

I prefer to be an odyssey

Honestly not too confident

Or dominant in any field

Or a wannabe

I wanna be me

It’s my philosophy


And all that I need

I don’t want to be

In Sequels with whack people

Entering a career that never seems to

Treat you as equals



Don’t really need you

So easy to see


They don’t even see you

So why wait for fame on a red carpet line

When you can shine right now and be the real you



Even the best Singers can be the worst listeners

Indigenous prisoners to the corporate penny pinchers

Merging their innocent youth with their being so immature

In a world that never heard of them or asked for their signatures

Even worse they flapping their lips, wagging their hips

Their fans refer to each other as a fag or a bitch

Suddenly I’m a hater for trying to understand their little world

and their peculiar talent as they become the singular

Definition of musical genius or something similar

Maybe a titular mixture of a singer who is hitting newer

Levels with treble their ego won’t settle so you can’t

Meddle, and if you ain't with it

then you're in the land of the lost rebel without a cause

as they take the stage

Hear you praise their name

With great applause


This happens rather instantly

Cocky artists are awarded then fade to black in the next scene

they cop the gold and retreat the stage within a beat

Is this really why you truly got into the music industry?


We need to look more into this music murder mystery

Giving off more cash and gold than Mc Hammer on QVC

Why must I give attention to the lives of people that got nothing to do with me

when they keep getting more famous because of TMZ


The message in this song isn’t so cleverly written

Yet everyone thinks I’m a hidden part of a system

You know what if you don’t want to believe in that stuff too

I won’t give in to hype, become cocky or get drugged to

The non-stop onslaught of offset nonsense

Constant misconceptions of my lyrical content

Because I know nobody will be convinced yet

Until they see the real me perform at my best

But how can I

Should I even bother

Am I mad or high

Will this be my only song

Summing up my entire life after I die?

I’m not even trying to be funny it’s just me

Trying to understand mortality

And why good people suffer casualties


Who am I?

It is me

none other than TNT

The Next Thing Trying out New Things to avoid monotony

Drawing the bridge over the cesspool of hypocrisy

In the streets until the industry stops using artist for monopoly


I’d like to get in this game for I know it beats in the heart of me

And to anyone who thinks I give up so easily. Hardly

you choose to put me in a situation where I can only lose

You took away my choices

Why so surprised to see this honest part of me?


I don’t know for what or how long I will stay

But I will save the time day it takes to rot the mind away

And make it a gift nobody can ever take away

Because a day comes when someone has something to say


I don’t know what’s wrong anymore

Something just don’t feel right

I can’t sleep at night

I feel like I lost the fight

Or is there just way too much change to deal with

Labels want you to dance for the money like you mean it

It’s a simple mechanism

Think of it as a prism

illuminating in hidden rhythms

what makes life worth living


Because in this time of your life

you know what it’s like

To see so many wrongs

When you look for the right

And maybe then the pain will subside

When you refract your mind

To better focus on that

inner light that shines inside

And that's it. I hope you enjoyed reading it, maybe it gave you something to feel happy about, I don't know, I'm not sure how to go about this, but I did like writing this, and I really tried thinking heavily on this thing, I would like to go deeper, but I didn't want to center my point on one area. I feel good about it, like I finally finished something. I only hope it gives someone the same feeling that life is way more important than just having the rich and glamorous hollywood celebrity lifestyle. Please leave a comment, and let me know your thoughts on it, heck, I'd like to hear someone try rapping this! Really, I'll help you if you plan on doing so lol. Anyways, seriously Thank you for giving this a read.
