Can I Live ?

Please check out rapper Nick Cannon’s video Can I Live?. It tells the story of how Nick’s life was nearly ended on an abortion table 24 years ago.

The song places Nick in the postition of pleading his right to live to his mother

“What do you want morning sickness or the sickness of mourning?”

“I’ll always be a part of you. trust your soul and know it’s heart is true”

“If I could talk I’d say to you, Can I live? Can I live?”

“I’m a child of the King, theres no need to fear me
I can see your flowing tears and I know that you feel me”

As I’ve mentioned before whether you like or dislike rap there is no denying the size of it’s audience. A song like this has the potential to reach and affect millions of listeners.

Rap music is largely and often deservedly associated with negative lyrics so whenever a song is brought out which offers up a thought provoking and positive message it should be applauded and shown support.

    Regardless of my general dislike of rap, that is an awesome song.

  2. Kevin says:

    I liked it almost as much as “Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy.”

    Keith, I thought so as well, especially that line “I’m a child of the King” – If you really think about it and believe it then it changes everything about the way a person thinks and behaves.

    Kevin – those dudes are scary!
