Unbecoming To Become | Dante Qushawan Farrar
Writing, recording and shooting this piece of content was so difficult but liberating at the same time. We all have felt with trauma, I’ve learned it’s not about what happens to you it’s about how you handle it. As men we deal with so much that we don’t talk about but I think it’s time we free ourselves from the bondage of our pain. Some people won’t bother reading this or listening to the message in the words, all they will see is that I cut my hair. Whatever you may take from this is completely out my control but I would love for this to serve as a tool for healing, anyone who may be struggling to address whatever trauma they have yet to process and deal with. “Unbecoming to become” - Farrar Appreciate the powerful message and courage of this. This gives life subtance and a since of advice to people growing up with similar backgrounds. To understand different paths and see the outcome so far is a certain kind of gratification. Thank you, Dante Qushawan Farrar. #BeattHeoddZ #BHZLife #CultFamily Credit: Directed and photographed by SASSO IG: @Sasso www.ErickSasso.com Written by Dante Farrar IG @leaderofcultrap Stream Re-up EP here: https://ffm.to/1jda5cahww Get exclusive CultRap offers here: https://www.patreon.com/denirofarrar Don't Forget To Subscribe! http://bit.ly/1cXGnxX Join The #CultFamily Follow Deniro Farrar online! http://facebook.com/DeniroFarrarKOBK http://twitter.com/DeniroFarrar http://instagram.com/Leaderofcultrap https://soundcloud.com/denirofarrarmusic
