“Poppin” by Creative Mike The Rapper is a rap track that is socially conscious. This song elucidates the societal ills that are ravaging the communities, especially the black communities. It brings to fore, sensitive subjects like gun violence, emancipation or racial freedom, equity, justice and fairness, religious extremism and political bigotry, alcoholism, excessive sexual perverseness among men and women and every ill “poppin” up.
Talking about this through his song, probably might change the way his society thinks. In the song, he also expresses the disappointment of his father being locked up and not being able to secure his freedom despite his prayers and his hope for a better world for his daughter. He equally lamented on some of the personal issues he is faced with as a black man.
His beats are nicely and uniquely crafted and effectively backs up the organ or other instruments of the pipe division and the electric bass. They reverberate in the minds as you ponder on the same issues opined in his lyrics. He was able to execute rhyming schemes at stretched intervals in simplistic approach while passing his message across. This preserves the essence of his lyrical content. He is also creative in his delivery, realizing when to take in a deep breathe, when to pause and when to augment his flow. His transitions are suave while maintaining a regular vocal key. This is a very nice work and a disc Jockey’s delight. Creative Mike the rapper deserves all the accolade that come his way.
