Connecticut Casual

If you had to make a Venn diagram of the categories “Rap Videos,” “Connecticut,” and “Freemasons,” you’d probably think that the intersection would be 0.

You’d think.

    Good Afternoon Brother Tom Interesting post to say the least. I have listened a few times and still have a hard time picking out most of the words – ears are getting old I suppose! I googled for the lyrics but came up short – are you aware of any source? Thanks and keep up the great work!

      Hey Bro. John –

      I don’t have anything yet, but I’m working on it. I found this via the /r/Freemasonry group on Reddit. Compass Lodge is in the southern end of the state here.

    Mike dodge had a great comment about this video on The Working Tools Facebook page:
    He is a real Mason. He’s been a Mason for about 2 – 2 1/2 years here in Connecticut. He is very enthusiastic, serves on Grand Lodge Committees, and is very well spoken, etc. Don’t confuse his “Stage Persona” with who he is in real life, because they are very different. Take his stage name, for example: “Apathy”. It’s NOT because he’s apathetic, it’s because he wants people to ask what it means and gives him an opportunity to speak AGAINST apathy in our society.

    What he gives us here in CT is a way to speak to younger generations. Even though he is almost 40, he speaks the language of men far younger than him, and he has helped us learn a lot about the Millennial Generation. He understands what a 20 – 25 year old wants out of masonry far better than our 60+ year old members who have been in The Craft for 30 years.

    His music and videos are his “business”. I know here in CT, our Rules & Regulations make a distinction between a man’s livelihood and what is “Masonically proper” (within the limitations of our obligations). For example, Brother A cannot bring Brother B up on charges just because Brother B underbid Brother A on a job. Of course there are limitations for this, but we don’t bring brothers up on charges for owning liquor stores or bars even though many feel alcohol is one of the “ill’s of society”. I see Apathy’s work the same way.
