Emmanuel Jal Week: Day 1 "Forced to Sin"
Forced to Sin: This song talks about my best friend Lual who out of hunger and desperation, I was tempted to eat when he died by my side. It's about me leaving home when I was seven, a year later I became a soldier so I thought I'd testify about the point in my life where I felt I was forced to sin to make a living. I wanted it to help and inspire people and put across the point that you should be thankful for whatever you have. This song inspires me most when things are difficult and I start to become unfocused, it reminds me where I came from.
As you can see this isn't your everyday hip-hop. Even if you don't like rap you can agree that he has something far more important to say than his contemporaries.
