Rapper performs emotional song written by an 11-year-old to his bully
An 11-year-old boy named Isaac wrote a powerful rap about being bullied by a former friend named Thomas.
Isaac, who was too shy to read the rap himself, emailed his favorite rapper Mac Lethal and asked him to perform the song for him.
"My best friend Thomas who grew up down the street from me… Well he used to be my best friend, now he hates me and hurts me whenever i see him," Isaac writes. "He has made my entire school not like me and they always make fun of how I walk and talk. I am nice to all of them but they are cruel to me except for my friend Jonas and Sarah and some girls who like me."
In the video, Mac Lethal sets Issac's honest reflection of how his friendship with Thomas has changed to a beat, and raps emotional lines, such as "I'm not as strong as you when you punch me it hurts/ I'm still mad at you for ripping my new shirt" and "I just wish you wouldn’t make fun of me because I've never met my dad/ When we were friends you would say that it was sad."
Watch as Mac Lethal addresses Thomas, credits Issac, and encourages everyone to "be better people." ■
