When Reach Records Christian Hip Hop artist Tedashii “Tdot” Anderson told EEW Magazine why he raps, one of the reasons was to “create a worldview for my son to have so he can understand biblical manhood.”
The Texas-based husband and father was devastated by tragedy with the sudden death of his one-year-old son in March 2013. In a new single, “Dark Days, Darker Nights,” featuring Britt Nicole, he talks about it.
“My days be long/nights seem long/call on the help and nobody is home/all by myself and I feel so alone,” Tedashii raps passionately, reflecting on his pain.
In an explanation of the lead single from his forthcoming 4th album “Below Paradise” posted on his label’s website, Tedashii writes, “The loss of my son changed me forever. I experienced grief and sorrow to the depth of my soul.”
He goes on, “The veil was lifted, the smoke cleared and all I had was pain. Instantly phrases like, ‘It’s all good” or “It’ll be ok” were cliché and, at best, empty promises.”
Void of joy, peace and optimism, Tedashii says, “The comfort of life with no pain was gone and I saw the world in an entirely new way. I felt forsaken, alone, and in a place of darkness that has been kept masked by a focus on only the good side of this life.”
He laments, “The reality of being a Christian and suffering so harsh a thing was hard for me to grasp.”
