I went to my friend, J Beck’s Phoenix Rising Concert last week and thought it was really great.  J Beck is a rapper and Chicago school teacher.  He raps about education and youth. I think his music is awesome.  He does have a Jay-Z influence that I can hear in his song and his style of rapping.  His beats are catchy and his lyrics are inspiring.  They make you think and want to take action.  Here’s a video of his performance from the show. The concert was  a fundraiser to help the high school he teaches for in the North Lawndale area of Chicago, near the west side of Chicago.  I have in that same high school for an after school program, and some of the kids there struggle with their day to day lives.  Check out more of his music on his BandCamp website
