The God’s Plan Music Video 

If you read my blog, you would know that I love listening to rap music and watching music videos. I also enjoy listening to other types of music like Kylie Minogue’s Golden. Drake is one of the most famous hip-hop artists alive right now. He started his music career in 2009 with the song Best I Ever Had. In the last year, Drake had success with his song Passionfruit, and God’s Plan has been equally successful this year.

Drake The Rapper

Drake’s song God’s Plan is one of his catchiest songs to date. The song also has a deeper meaning than his other music. Based on the title, the listener can easily identity this. If you are a true fan of Drake, then you have probably heard the song already. If you still aren’t convinced about his song, here are some of my favorite clean rappers

Drake’s Generosity

What permeates this entire video is the generosity of Drake. He goes around to different people in the Miami area and hands out cash, cars, or takes a few hard-working women on shopping sprees. This is really generous, although he probably could have done a background check with Kiwi searches. Even if your not a fan of his, thats a pretty remarkable video. 

Antonio Brown’s Cameo

Antonio Brown is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL today. He makes an appearance in Drake’s new music video as himself, dancing in a shopping mall. Drake and Brown are at a Saks Fifth Avenue, the same place where Drake gave out the shopping sprees. The unexpected presence of Antonio Brown adds an interesting twist to the video.

The Joy of Giving

What makes this music video so inspiring is not the amount that Drake was able to give away. The music video was a testament to the joy that giving brings to both the giver and the receiver. This recent video may wind up being one of the biggest moments in his career with millions of views on YouTube.  As I am writing this, the music video has over 447 million views. 

The Skeptics 

Many people may be skeptical of Drake in this music video. It may seem like he is just flaunting his money and using the video as a scheme to gain more supporters. However, this music video is a refreshing reminder of what can happen when people are generous to one another. Music videos like this show the joy that can be found when human beings treat each other better. 

The 3 Best Clean Rappers

You won't be mommy shamed while listening to these rappers.

In today’s culture, rap and hip hop music is often associated with filthy lyrics, loud and harsh beats, and awful messages. If they give it the time of day, most parents will be shamed for it. So they won’t play it in their homes and might easily write it off as bad music to avoid mommy shaming.

However, there’s a small handful of artists and musicians who want to redeem this genre of music. They want to show the world that hip hop has a voice, with culture that can bring wonderful art and meaningful messages. Here are three artists with clean lyrics, well-produced sounds, conscience thoughts, and commentary on family-friendly topics. You can find them on most music streaming apps.

Three Of The Best Clean Rap Artists

Both parents and kids can listen to these rappers.
People of all ages can enjoy these artists.

Shad

Shad Kabango was born in Kenya but raised in Ontario, Canada, where he now resides. He has four albums under his belt, and each is better than the one before it. In fact, he beat out Drake in 2012 for best rap record of the year and has toured all over the world. Shad’s music is tasteful and clever, with clean and original lyrics. Moms and dads everywhere won’t have to worry about mommy shaming when listening to it. Shad has taken the underground hip hop scene by storm and is widely considered to be one of the best rappers of this generation.

Shad balances out discussing hard topics with a lightness that makes him easy to enjoy. If you’re looking for an amazing artist that you could play in front of your kids, look no further than Shad. The best place to start would be with his album “The Old Prince.”

Beautiful Eulogy

This trio / super group is from Portland, Oregon. The MC’s are Braille and Odd Thomas, while the DJ is Courtland Urbano. Both Braille and Odd Thomas had successful music careers before they collaborated to make Beautiful Eulogy. They blend styles of music such as folk, rock, electronica and hip hop, earning them the title of the most innovative hip hop group in Portland.

With deep, theological lyrics, an unapologetic approach, and pressing the envelope on what hip hop is, they’re also clean and refreshing. You’ll find no cause for mommy shaming, like cussing or exploitive references, here. Just good music made by good guys who want to put a positive dent in the rap and hip hop scene. They just released their most recent record, “Worthy,” at the end of 2017. It’s their best project to date.

Propaganda

Jason Emmanuel Petty, or better known by his stage name Propaganda, is a rapper, poet and activist from L.A. Having grown up in the same neighborhoods as big names like Tupac, N.W.A. and Eazy-E, he experienced many similar situations such as gang culture and violence, poverty, and racism.

But unlike many other hip hop artists, Propaganda uses his story in powerful ways to encourage the world around him. His music is bold, raw and thought-provoking. He stays away from being explicit, while still being honest and powerful. His most recent album, “Crooked,” has received critical acclaim, as it should, because it’s incredible.

So, in a world full of harsh and crude rap and hip hop, you can rest assured that there are a few amazing artists out there who want to bring a new light and vision to this culture. These three artists in particular are a great place to start.
