Memphis rapper, Don Trip, gained critical acclaim with his “Letter to My Son” single. Often, absentee fathers are villainized by the media. However, there are times when there is another side of the story to tell. Don Trip told this story in an emotional way, hoping his son will one day understand. Usually, the children grow up angry with their fathers without knowing the full story.
When couples break up, the mother often ends up with the child and the father goes away. But, what is not told is how the father is sometimes forced away. Don Trip got the hip hop world to feel his pain, but there is another side of the story not being told. When couples break up, the mother often ends up with the child and moves on to another man.
Reek da Villain remixed “Letter to My Son” for the men out there who have stepped up as the father figure in the lives of young children. With the mother usually battling the biological father of her children, the boyfriend is caught in the middle, usually fighting the father, also. Reek da Villain has been in that position in the past and wrote his version of the song based upon this.
