new hip hop artist ~ Ridvan Tu'itahi
a dear friend of mine just introduced me to Ridvan Tu'itahi, her nephew from Tonga. he has a fresh style that reminds me of Tupac. i was immediately taken by his story and then felt taken back to a time when rap was full of lyrics and meaning. i love how rap has spread around the world and touched many young people's lives in positive ways. i hope his music spreads from the south Pacific and touches many lives throughout the rest of the world.
i love listening to rhythms that move me, that penetrate my heart and enable me to feel connected to the Oneness of our humanity. i especially love hip hop (without profanity). it tells a story. it introduces a message. it makes you reflect. sometimes it reminds you of what's wrong with the world, or what morals have declined but it's honest. it's in my veins as if it's a part of me even though i'm far removed from the world in which its being told. the beats and rhymes have been reverberating through me for more than 25 years..
