A YouTube rapper, Prince Ea, has become famous for his raps that share positive messages and encourage social reform. His most recent video makes viewers think about their use of social media and new technology.

“I’m so tired of performing in the pageantry of vanity and conforming to this accepted form of digital insanity,” Prince Ea raps in his video, titled “Can We Auto-Correct Humanity?” “Call me crazy, but I imagine a world where we smile when we have low battery ‘cause that’ll mean we’ll be one bar closer to humanity.”

Prince Ea spoke with television and radio host Glenn Beck about his concerns for our culture two weeks ago and shared his belief that reform will begin one person at a time.

“If you want to change the culture, you have to change the human heart and the culture will follow,” he told Beck. “… I am an artist that wants to connect with peoples’ hearts because I think the individual is everything.”

The video was posted on Sept. 29 and has more than 3.1 million views on YouTube.
