Do You by Rap Monster: To be honest, I wasn’t really feeling this song the first time I heard it. It wasn’t that it was bad, actually it was quite good, however the song made me pause. I wasn’t sure what it was that made me unable to really understand what I thought about this song until I listened to it a few more times. I think what held me back the first time was all the cursing that was more apparent in this song than many of his others. It’s not that the cursing takes away from the song, it just took me by surprise with the frequency of it’s use. That being said, it is still a great song with an overall good message to it that lets people know they should just be themselves and not worry about what others have to say about you. My take on it is that he’s saying he doesn’t care what other people label him as or what others say he should be or do, he’s just going to do him and not worry about it. I like that he shows such confidence in not only the lyrics but in the video as well. He’s got a good and simple beat to this song, a great message behind it, in addition to a great choice in wardrobe. Overall he’s got several good points to this and I look forward to hearing more good songs in his mix tape.
P.S- One thing I didn’t quite understand was, what was up with all those pills? If anyone can shed some light on that, feel free to give me your thoughts on it.
