When our son was younger, he always enjoyed listening to hip hop and music with funky beats.
While we didn’t want him listening to music that was too over the top, he found a lot of underground music that was surprisingly more appropriate than a lot of that mainstream garbage.
He even managed to find a lot of interesting Christian hip hop which is something I never even knew existed before he found it. It wasn’t long before he was coming up with his own lyrics and practicing his own rhyming. He asked around that time if he could have a window AC unit because sometimes he felt a little too overheated in his room. He knew that I didn’t want him messing with the thermostat for the central cooling system either. I’m glad that he asked for a window AC unit because I thought it was a reasonable request and it was a good reward for him getting such good grades in school. It also helped him a lot with his music. He said when the AC settings were just right, he could spit his rhymes easier and it made recording more enjoyable as well. He said it also somehow gave him better creativity when putting together new instrumentals. We’ve been nothing but impressed with him over the years. We’ve watched most of his performances and now he is making a lot of money with his own independent record label. Now he works with artists to get them in the spotlight, and he makes a pretty good living. He has a nice home with excellent zoned HVAC equipment along with his own indoor studio.
