I've blogged frequently on rapper Nick Cannon's biographical song and video that send a strong pro-life message, although he denies that was his intent.
At any rate, the touching visuals of the video are being well-received by the very important hip hop culture, even if the song on its own isn't. Reports RapNews.net:
[T]he video is a hit - it debuted at No. 1 on BET's countdown show, "106 & Park," and spent almost a month in the top 10. But the song is at only No. 85 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop tracks.
Rondell Conway, associate editor of Vibe magazine, says the visuals play like a film drama, but the song alone sounds "like a touchy subject. Plus, I don't know if kids hear it like a confusing thing. They don't know what side to be on."
