When the Houston Independent School District goes about cutting arts programs and shutting schools, we hope they take into account the following video.
Presumably created somewhere in Houston's Third Ward, the video shows your average grade school-age kids--- probably no more than 6 or 7 years old---practicing the art of freestyle rapping in a profanity laced display of wordplay.
Freestyling, off-the-dome rhyming as they call it, is one of the first things you must master as a rapper. We wouldn't know from experience, since we don't rap, but from the looks of this video that recently hit YouTube, thanks to progenitor of violent and shocking "hood" videos World Star Hiphop, we have a good idea.
Winsto, the kid on the intro, who spells out his name does have a hearfelt moment here: "This is for the mothers all over the world, trying to make a living just trying to live right. Trying to feed their children just one more night. Trying to make a living in this ghetto life."
