The Racism I Go Through by Michael (Nawt) Nhat

Kristin Pedderson

Thank you for sending your track for review. We found the track compelling and interesting. We also thought it was original and timely. We enjoyed listening and felt the only thing that may be a deterrent to some, was the repeated use of the words fuck you- this may be offensive to others and we believe you can make your point using other words without offending sensitive ears.

WOW Just what the doctor ordered. Very innovative I love this approach, while the subject matter was serious, it brought a smile to face just after going some racial prejudiced talk on social media, that most people just don't get. You had a unique uncanny way of revealing the truth about peoples labeling and invalidation techniques.

My only complaint especially for Vevo is that the vocal audio sounded a bit over driven? 

Otherwise an excellent avant-garde work. I will certainly place this on my reverbnation video player for Worldwide streaming consumption and #HashTag humble brag, if BlackCaesar says it's hot people know to rely on that.

This one stopped me in my tracks.  Not radio friendly, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate it.  Love the rap and the beat and especially the social justice message, made me sit up and listen.  Really well done.  Video is well done too.  I would come out for a performance as a happening, but don’t see a place I can promote this commercially.  Keep on! Thanks for your submission, good luck with your music.
