My friend and rapper Pussy Power experienced the darkest side of human nature. She asked me to help produce a track that could explain her experience.
Pussy Power shares her story:
"I suffer from severe depression.
When I was in one of my depressed phases, I became an escort for 10 months. I felt so horrible about my body that I thought I needed liposuction in order to not kill myself. Following my experiences as a whore, my biggest fear was that the world would find out and never want to see me again. Now my biggest fear is living my entire life having failed to help those who didn’t escape the Dreamhouse like me.
Would you like to help shatter the Dreamhouse?"
Despite the many important issues that have been discussed this election, there are many more that still fall by the wayside. Sex trafficking is a widespread problem that has a very real presence in the United States. The FBI estimates an annual 293,000 at risk victims in American youths alone.
The suggested price for Welcome to the Dream house is one dollar. 100% of proceeds from this track will go to Polaris Project, a wonderful organization that works with both current and former victims of human trafficking both in the US and abroad. Please help us get the word out about this track to help the many women, children, and men who are affected by human trafficking.
Pussy Power says: "Repost, retweet, reinterpret, draw, paint, sculpt, act, rap, sing anything about this poem that moved you, that makes you feel the Dreamhouse is getting ever more fragile."
