Dis Raps for Hire. Season 2 - Ep. 3
Pick up the DRFH Season 1 CD http://bit.ly/Y5oAyY
My name is Jonas, I have these 4 guys in my class (nelson, mark, steven and lucas) who are the worst freaking bullies man. They like to pick on me for being Dislexic.
They force me to read these ungodly large words that they now i can't say just to mock me and if i don't read them they beat me up or stuff me into lockers. I tried talking to them to make them stop but they ended up breaking my wrist. I tried everything to get them off my back. I just want to feel like at least someone cares. Please destroy
Hello again People of Earth,
Welcome to another episode of your favorite fun time show, Dis Raps for Hire. I hadda work extra hard on this particular episode because of the nature of the topic and because of how many folks I think this probably affects. In writing the song I thought it'd be best to just hit the hardest and toughest aspects of the disease straight in the face and use it to challenge the idea that people with dyslexia can't read, or will never be able to read as good as the rest of us. I don't believe that is true. That of course is why, I hit up Zach and had him work his lyrical magic on this badboy.
I'll be working hard to try and get perhaps one more episode of Dis Raps out before we go back to work on ERB. I'll most likely take a little break from the show at that time to bring you...you know...that other show.
Anyways, big shout out to Jonas and everyone who helped make this video possible (including all of you).
We will see you next time!
