"Can I Live?"

American celebrity, Nick Cannon is best known for his starring role in the film Drumline as well as his marriage to Mariah Carey. In Cannon’s music video for his single, Can I Live, he steers clear from common rap themes like money and fame and focuses on another issue, life. Can I Live is about the beginning of Nick Cannon’s life, the very beginning. In the video, Cannon portrays a ghost urging his mother not to go through with her planned abortion, reciting lines like, “300 dollars that’s the price of living…what?” and “You can tell he’s a star from the ultrasound.” The end of the video is the most compelling. Cannon appears with his very own mother, hugging her and reaffirming that the decision she made to support life, was the right one.
