Bronx Rapper Produkt Forced To Wrestle With A Horrible Admission

Growing up in the Bronx, career paths aren't often chosen from a textbook or pamphlet. Sometimes the streets are the only trade school available for a struggling young man with no direction and no supervision to help shape his future.

Several months ago when Produkt was wrongly accused of a crime, he knew that he would forever be a target because of his prior convictions and brushes with the law. Facing a minimum sentence of 10 years, he began to reflect on his life and the undo burden he was about to inflict on his children due to an aggressive prosecutor who's ambitions were clearly to advance her career off what she saw as an easy target.

As he felt his freedom slipping from his grasp, his life came full circle when he recalled the day his 6 year old daughter approached him and asked "daddy, why when you say you're working you leave and come right back". He began to realize that even though he was no longer hustling in the streets that the past always had a way of rearing it's ugly head. He knew that the time would come when his secret would one day come out and forever shape how she felt about him.

Explaining to his daughter that he was an up & coming Hip Hop artist didn't ease the pain of knowing that he could only prey on her naiveté for so long. She was 11 years old now; closer to him than ever. Now she was asking lots of questions. Growing up fearless on the streets of the Bronx did nothing to ease his angst. He was afraid of the Pandora's box that was slowly starting to open.

With no clear way to broach the subject, Produkt did what he does best, he wrote. He walked into the recording booth and repented, but it never felt right. After 2 hours of trying to apologize through his art, he scrapped all plans and decided to own it. The result is a heart-wrenching, unapologetic account of what his life was like hustling on the streets to feed his family.

His daughter is growing older and wiser every day. She's still young enough to abide by the restrictions her father places on online media content. One day she will be old enough to defy him and see this video. More questions will arise. "Curiosity awakens every secret. How do I tell my daughter Daddy was a Dope boy"? Perhaps he just did.
