Across the way from us was a musical group, the John Rhey Band.
I had the nerve to tell John Rhey himself that I am MC AC The Rap Lady. Could the band accompany me while I spit a rap, I wanted to know. It happened. A crowd gathered and I just kept on rapping, not afraid.
In the next twenty-four hours the word spread about this widow on a reprieve from her bereavement. Pictures went on Facebook and John Rhey and myself befriended each other on Facebook. I promised to pray for the band's career and his upcoming CD. He promised to pray for this crazy widow.
Now I am hoping to get ten raps up on my YouTube channel in the fall. Go there to subscribe and when a rap is produced for YouTube it will come to your email. There are three videos up now.
How did I get into rapping? When I wrote my book, Getting Off the Niceness Treadmill, I put a poem about social media in that book. I started saying this poem in middle school and high school and the students told me it was a rap. It caught on with the students who even ask for my autograph now. My rapping makes life easier and I even put smiles on people's faces when I rap for them apart from school.
