Im a 15 year old sikh girl and i wear a dastar and have been doing since i was 4. I always used to love writing poetry as it would be an escape from the bullying and hate i received. A few years ago i started writing raps and performing them at school and my school talent shows. I dont swear or use bad language in my raps or poetry. And i only rap about things that send a message across to people like equality and peace. Im the only sikh girl in my school in england and everyone knows me as the turban rapper haha. Its. Definitely made me more confident and happy, However ive been told that rapping is wrong. Please can you help me? Sorry if i have said anything wrong

It's all about intent, beta. There is nothing at all wrong with rapping if your intention is pure. You say you only rap about things that send a message across to people like equality and peace. What's wrong with that? To say "rapping is wrong" and to put your raps in the same bucket with someone like Lil' Kim, well that's just ignorance. Rapping is just a form of poetry. Keep up, keep going and ignore the critics.

It's really great you are doing that Simrankaur2020. You have taken some painful experiences and used the energy and creativity of this art form to be able to express yourself. I think that it's a really amazing thing to do and you should keep it up. It's great that you are able to use a medium that young people are able to relate to/be engaged, and be able to spread such positive messages! You are an inspiration to others :)
