One of my earliest memories of connecting with music was when I was in the 2nd grade. A classmate gave me a mix tape that his older brother had given him. I remember putting it in my Walkman, pressing play, and immediately loving it. The music, however, was actually the raunchiest, most explicit, gangster rap that until this day, I swear is the dirtiest rap I had ever heard. Think Too Short on steroids. It had every curse word imaginable and I knew I probably shouldn’t be listening to it, but I couldn’t help it. I was obsessed; with the rhythm, with the beats, the vibe, everything. I listened to it over and over and over again, so it was no surprise that one evening, while my mom was cooking dinner and I was sitting on the floor bobbing my head with my walkman on she asked, “What are you listening to?” With a guilty look on my face, I replied “nothing,” and I knew I was caught. She took my headphones off, put them on, and was in complete shock. She was appalled! Which is pretty funny, now that I think about it, I can’t imagine what I would do if I caught my kid listening to that. So she opens the Walkman, rips out the tape, and throws it in the garbage. In my 7 year old rage, I immediately ran to the trash, pulled out the tape, grabbed one of the metal cooking utensils she was using, and proceeded to smash it to pieces. In my mind, I thought, “if I have to give this tape up, I’m going to do it with a bang.” And I did. Later in life, I learned how to dance from listening to underground hip hop music, and it’s had a place in my heart ever since.
