    Oppression in lyrics of Hip Hop and Rock Artist..Chicken

    Globally, the dominant discourse has oppressed many lives. Racism is a common form of oppression that effects many. I gave up writing songs about negative subject matter and explicit lyrics. I began writing songs that can empower, educate, enlighten and entertain others. Listen to my first single "The Color of my Face" Artist: Chicken...you can find the link here.

    Corporate America would make you think their blues, blues guitar, is the basis for American music.
    Maybe, but what about the horrors of slavery that created that style, that expression?
    How can a modern musician be expected to relate to all of that?

    I think I'm going to look at some Lake Erie ice storm photos, and the videos I made.
    That's a lot calmer.

    I think pictures of Lake Erie are calmer. But, in reality for some, life is not that calm. It can be complicated, stressful, agonizing, frightening, and traumatic in all facets of everyday life. The music that is created from those who are oppressed, maybe exactly how ones feel. Bringing awareness can be surface, at the same time the pure emotions evoked can be just as real as the ice storms you mention. Without, the calming serenity of a picture some music can bring a different kind of storm.
