The more I learn about the way artists use their platforms to support a cause, the more I believe in the power of music. I have always believed that music is an amazing way to unite people. However, in recent years, music has become a strong method used to reach out to people about topics that are sometimes difficult to approach. J. Cole raps for a cause that is dear to his heart and anyone who listens to his music is paying attention to him for at least those 3:00 minutes. Although some people may feel as though this is not a very serious manner to approach a situation, I agree that this is one of the most powerful platforms.
