PARTY ANTHEM (almost an ode to Hip Hop music)

I remember Hip Hop made me feel… free.

It was music that actually spoke

to youth singing along with Biz Markie.

Hip Hop like Rakim once said, “ain’t no joke.”

The party was what it used to be about.

MCs had go be able to rock mics

and move a live crowd- or they got thrown out!

Real voices back then; not auto-tuned sikes.

Thank the Hip Hop gods for innovators

that push envelopes and challenge their peers

to be trailblazers not imitators.

Voices of resistance are needed here!

Some artists will play requests asked of them.

But… I’d settle for a party anthem!
