Phonte – “The Good Fight” Video

Initially, I had this entire post mapped out about how Phonte’s “The Good Fight” describes my life and how it strikes a nerve that moves me to the point of chills each time I hear the record. Then I realized, doing so would be selfish. The struggle Tay brings to light in his newest visual doesn’t just describe one person, one family or one situation. Rather, it describes us all – or at least someone we know – in some shape or fashion.

To the general listening public, most assume rappers are financially stable based off their music videos and own self-described fairy tales of a hustle that’s second to none. Of course, this sounds good, but lays truth to a Tupac lyric which still hits home to this day. “Yo, get a real job, rapping doesn’t pay the rent/I hate the studio ’cause that’s where all my money went.” There’s a stream of unmatched honesty hearing Phonte verbalize the same concept allowing the listener to realize everything isn’t always sweeter on the other side of the microphone.

If you’ve failed to do so yet, drop some pennies for Charity Starts At Home on iTunes. It’s well worth the investment.
