Meet 24-year-old rapper Foe Foe Tha Don, a West Palm Beach native who’s bringing a message to the airwaves. The message? That, no matter what trials and tribulations life brings, never give up. He’s living testimony to that: a two-time convicted felon, Foe Foe Tha Don never gave up. While serving time in prison, he said, he focused on his future, not his past, and worked to perfect his craft. The song featured here, Message, is real and raw; blatantly so.
When asked about his inspiration for the song, his answer was simple. “The song came from stress and letting petty things get to my head,” he said, “like old friends who felt a way because I came home with a different mindset from when I left.” Message voices the struggles, growing pains and hopes of a young talented black man who made some mistakes while living in America—but works to overcome those mistakes. Today, he has a daughter (that’s her in the picture, at top) and a full-time job. With lyrics like “never been the type to wait for a handout” and “I got a daughter now so I move right” and “I was tired of going through the same thing,” his views are eminently relatable. He has released more music on YouTube, including a tune called No Pain; click here to hear it. Wishing you the best, Foe Foe!
