Starting off the week, we’re sharing this inspiring spoken word piece by award winning rapper Prince Ea (Richard Williams) entitled, “Why I Think this World Should End.”
Price Ea’s mission statement:
‘To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large.”
Check out his “Make Smart Cool” website here.

I’m confused…I thought he was different from his raps of The World is Coming to An End
and Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?
But the MakeSmartCool website you put up as a link is just more trash talk and sounds like every other rapper who talks nasty to make a statement.
So why is it that a Christian Feminist website would put up this link as something good?
I am a youth pastor and I was going to use his videos above (not the MakeSmartCool) to start a discussion about cell phones and technology but now…I am rethinking that.
Can you help me out? How to you decided to lift up this links?
This is a prime example of Christians embracing art that is apostasy. This guy’s message is grim and he obviously has no trust in God’s promise. I’d recommend spending more time reading your Bible because it really does contain everything pertaining to life in godliness. Check out Beautiful Eulogy. Their message is far more Christian. Trust in the risen Jesus Christ with all your heart. This world of sin is coming to an end but it has to be this way for God’s plan to be fulfilled. If you truly want to understand what it means to be a follower of Christ check out Joseph Herrin’s free books “Foundations” and “God’s Plan of the Ages”. I guarantee they will blow your mind if you are open to receiving God’s truth.
He’s just confused…, VERY confused… People like him needs the truth. He says all these things that the world is corrupt and everything, and YES that is true, but it doesn’t mean God isn’t in control of everything. He has no where to go, talking about these truths, but not understanding a solution. “Love…” He says love but the love he talks about is the love that is of the world.
Thanks for your comment. I’m sorry you didn’t think this video was appropriate content for us to post on Christian Feminism Today. I thank you for your willingness to state your opinion and ask for my thoughts.
I put this video up because I thought our readers would find it very thought provoking.
I must have missed the “talks nasty” part on his website. Granted, I didn’t watch every video, but I did read the text. I found it quite encouraging that he is bucking the trend in rap and hip hop by not glorifying violence, but instead promoting civic, political, and intellectual engagement.
There are a lot of lines in the video that I really like. Granted his view is cynical, but there are quite a few reasons why an African American man might feel pretty cynical these days.
But overall I posted it because I thought it would make people think.
We try to provide a diverse selection of content here on the Link of the Day blog. Some of it is specifically Christian feminist content, some of it is specifically feminist content, some of it is simply Christian content, some of it addresses social justice issues, and some of it is best classified as, “Now, for something completely different.”
You know your kids, but I think this video would be a great starting point for a really good discussion about how one person of color views the state of our country, how your kids agree and disagree with him, and how they hear his call to recreate what exists now.
Again, thanks for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate your engagement with our Link of the Day blog.
I also noticed he doesn’t make a single mention of God at all and implies that we are on our own toward change. Doesn’t that seem like it discourages the significance of God’s power?
