The format of the project was very naturally decided; both Gina and myself have been creating rap songs whether from the tops of our heads or composing pieces that have significance to us for about two years. Not only does the rapping platform allow us to continue what we do in our own time, but it’s perfect for this project because we have a lot to say in a short amount of time. Our song is able to address a majority of the issues threatening our oceans ranging from oil spills to noise pollution. Our demand as humans needs to decline. We must grow compassion, concern, and mindfulness. There are alternatives and solutions, we offer a few specific products to encourage a switch. Ultimately however, the change of mind is first and foremost in our eyes. If people are not willing to face the consequences of their actions, not able to see the wrongs, then alternatives and clean up will not serve a purpose to them. We hope our song is able to not only influence people to enforce simple alternatives and solutions, but encourage them to change laws, minds, and clean the world up before it really is too late. Our species cannot continue to slaughter, poison, and pillage our oceans, or just as bad, lay idle watching.
