NATIONWIDE, Sept. 2014—The lyrics in every genre of music are a method of storytelling. While most genres of music are aimed at generating a wide-range of emotions, too often the lyrics within rap send a destructive message.

Marcus “M-Positive” Parker is a celebrated motivational rapper, who writes his lyrics to send a positive message.
In his latest video for his single “A Message to our Youth”, M-Positive delivers his signature sound—while challenging the next generation to think beyond their current situation. He shares the struggles he overcame as a youth, and how he found the faith to follow his dreams—even when he was unsure how they would come to life.
“While all genres of music have musicians that push the boundaries of being politically correct, too often pushing the boundaries is celebrated in the rap industry.” Marcus “M-Positive” Parker
