Civilization by Dan Bull. An Inspirational Tale Of World History.
This rap called Civilization by Dan Bull is supposed to be a rap that’s created to go along with video footage of the PC game “Civilization 5: Brave New World“. What it ends up becoming is much more than a rap about a video game. It becomes a recount of world history, through civilization concept and into multi-era implementation. It recounts rises and falls of great leaders, the greatest of inventions in our time, the scholars, nobles, politicians, wars, and greed that embody our existence. It documents the poverty and wealth of some of the most notable figures throughout history.
Dan Bull is a YouTube rapper from England who maintains a steady stream of growth in his YouTube presence online. He mostly expresses his lyrical talents to video games, since this is an area of interest for him and his fan base. He also has Autism, so there are raps about this as well. If you enjoy this song, and like video games, perhaps Dan Bull is a good person for you to follow. Even if you aren’t a fan of rap, you may still enjoy what he’s got to offer, since the lyrics to every song are easily readable on every video. Best of all, his lyrics are sometimes far better than the vast majority of artists you’d hear on the radio. His language and culture are brought into his words, and with that, genius often comes out. This is an excellent example of how to properly do rap music. The prime example of the way it’s supposed to be. The music isn’t supposed to talk about getting ass, or making tons of money because you’re the greatest person in the world somehow.
Rap is supposed to tell great stories, just like all forms of music. Civilization by Dan Bull is executed with precision and intelligence.
We’ve come a long way to get where we are now, and I think that’s what I take from this the most. The pure immensity of the changes the civilizations of this world have gone through. The changes in living conditions, medicine, theology, science, astronomy, commerce, and war. From believing the world was flat and traveling on horses, to launching ourselves into space. It’s fascinating, and I think this rap captures everything very nicely.
