These three brothers had a difficult time expressing what they had gone through with their mother, until they were given a chance to write their feelings in rhyme. Each week they were given an assignment leading up to this recording. First they were to identify the feelings which came up when thinking about their mother. Then (with assistance) decide what words rhymed with their feelings and create a story with those. The third week they were asked to memorize the story.
This is their story.
My client had been a victim of bullying but had never expressed how he felt about it. After hearing rappers express vulnerability, he decided to try it himself.
For clients battling depression and drug abuse, there is power in urging them to write positive feelings and thoughts down in a rap format.
Until the Rhymecology sessions, this teenage father only rapped about violence and drugs.
When he was asked to look within and write form the heart,
this was the result.
Young Black Male
In the wake of the 2016 police shootings of young black men, this client took to the pen and paper to vent his frustrations, fear and feelings.
He never talked to any therapist. Except the one time we used Rhymecology.
