    "Dear EpicLloyd,

    My name is Jonas, I have these 4 guys in my class (nelson, mark, steven and lucas) who are the worst freaking bullies man. They like to pick on me for being Dislexic.
    They force me to read these ungodly large words that they now i can't say just to mock me and if i don't read them they beat me up or stuff me into lockers. I tried talking to them to make them stop but they ended up breaking my wrist. I tried everything to get them off my back. I just want to feel like at least someone cares. Please destroy


    Hello again People of Earth,

    Welcome to another episode of your favorite fun time show, Dis Raps for Hire. I hadda work extra hard on this particular episode because of the nature of the topic and because of how many folks I think this probably affects. In writing the song I thought it'd be best to just hit the hardest and toughest aspects of the disease straight in the face and use it to challenge the idea that people with dyslexia can't read, or will never be able to read as good as the rest of us. I don't believe that is true. That of course is why, I hit up Zach and had him work his lyrical magic on this badboy.

    I'll be working hard to try and get perhaps one more episode of Dis Raps out before we go back to work on ERB. I'll most likely take a little break from the show at that time to bring you...you know...that other show.

    Anyways, big shout out to Jonas and everyone who helped make this video possible (including all of you).

    We will see you next time!

                        Lloyd, I need you!
                        One more ride, what do ya say?
                        So basically my best friend got married about two years ago now, and called me immediately after his mum when he proposed and asked me to be best man, of course I said yes, I've known this guy since I was 4 and now we're pushing 30. Anyway, at the stag party I discovered he asked someone else to be best man, essentially firing me for no reason.
                        I tried to confront him about it, but what should have been a conversation between two basically brothers became his now-wife manipulating him from behind the scenes and turning him against me.
                        He's mildly autistic so I don't think he was fully able to stand up to her or see what she was doing.
                        We stopped talking, and very recently I discovered he's also cut out everybody else, even the guy he replaced me with as best man!
                        His name is Zeak, his wife is Emily.
                        Please, man, drop an A-Bomb on the woman who ruined so many friendships!

                            For some of the people so divisive in the comments, I find his voice not fit for rap. He has this frequency to his voice that Is hard to put my finger on but it does sound different. It's like he has a stereotypical "nerd" voice with the strange constriction of his throat that makes it just sound not great for me. I also think he is an absolute genius I could never in a million years do the word play he can, his lyrics are awesome. But his voice combined with his strange hand gestures and bad dancing in my opinion make him look awkward and nerdy so I get why people would find him weird. Again not a hater, I'm a big fan of Zach, I just get where some people are coming from finding him "annoying" but that's not the right word at all people find him awkward and it turns them off to the lyrics. Overall incredible vid, always love Lloyd and Zach.

                            EDIT: just to clarify no artist is perfect there are certain songs of Sia's that I don't like her voice in much. Doesn't mean she isn't an incredible singer or writer(in fact one of the GOATs IMO)

                                                                                          My name is Nathan and I am 13 years old. I make beats and comedy rap on YouTube. But people like a girl named Kaylai w say that I am a freak and that I don't belong. That's when my suicidal thoughts come in and I still have them. Who knows, this might be the last text I will ever make
