ThaNovelist's New Music Video "Why Me?" Reveals Childhood Experiences That He Hopes Helps Others
February 5, 2013

(iFastFwd Media) Las Vegas, NV - US Rapper ThaNovelist released his new video novel "Why Me?" an autobiography of his youth, on several global video channels this week. The song "Why Me?" weaves listeners through what some might call a living hell and speaks volumes about children in State facilities. The gritty Hitchcockesque track behind his lyrics was produced by National Musick League of the Philly International production fame. "When you listen to my songs like "Why Me?", you catch on fast that my childhood was completely different than most people." says ThaNovelist.

Most people have a few complaints about their childhood, however most have never witnessed or lived thru anything close to what ThaNovelist endured. After witnessing his mother's suicide as a 12 year old ThaNovelist found himself spending most of his teen years unwanted, in therapy, medicated and in various State run children's facilities. Now as an adult, ThaNovelist feels the need to share his gripping stories thru music. "I would describe my music to be inspirational to individuals who were told they would be a failure in life. It happened to me! If I can help turn a negative situation for someone into a positive one through my lyrics, then I feel my music has accomplished something that is missing in today's music", says ThaNovelist

When asked about his name, ThaNovelist responds: "The name ThaNovelist came from my ability to tell my life story in a format just like a novel." Musically influenced by 2Pac, Biggie and Mobb Deep ThaNovelist explains, "My first experience with music was listening to 2pac. The song I remember most was "Me Against The World". At that point in my life, it's exactly how I felt and I related to every word. To me, Pac was inspirational, yet real! As I was living my complicated childhood, Pac was a voice. I want to be that voice for others. I want others who have no one to talk to, to turn to my music to help them get through their struggles. Believe me, there are many."

As a youth, ThaNovelist felt voiceless and realizes that children's mental health issues are larger issues than the mass public are aware. ThaNovelist supports groups like the National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health and KidsMentalHealth.org and asks the public to do the same. A mind is a terrible thing to waste! Unfortunately, they're not playing this kind of music on American radio.

"Why Me?" can currently be viewed on www.iFameTv.com, YouTube and several global video outlets.
