The Rap Knight is a newly released single from music industry veteran and successful entrepreneur David Rothman, of New York. The catchy and uplifting track has generated significant acclaim and interest, and showcases David’s talents both as a producer and writer.
In stark contrast with the often depressing themes 2020 has brought, The Rap Knight is a powerful and uplifting song about the joys of life in one’s early 30s, the power of positivity, and a hope for a bright future. David writes against his expertly designed musical soundscape with lyrics like, “A lot to be thankful for in my life/ finally found that girl to make my wife/ family and friends all safe and sound/ this is our summer, time to get crowned.”
The production on the single showcases David’s significant talent as a musician and producer. The instrumentation and beat in The Rap Knight rivals anything one might hear on the radio, and provides the perfect lighthearted and introspective soundscape to match David’s lyrics, blending elements of hip-hop and pop.

“As a member of the Recording Academy it’s been a dream to get a chance to produce and release music. I’m looking forward to releasing more music in the near future. Music has always been a big part of my life… I first got into the industry by attending a lot of shows and was socializing with all people in the music industry. I got my Executive MBA and saw a gap in the industry, which was helping artists on the road. That’s when I decided to fill in that gap.”
David has also dedicated a significant amount of time and energy to philanthropic ventures behind the scenes.
Rothman explains his philanthropic work in an interview with Film Daily:
“UJA of NY is the world’s largest local philanthropic organization helping more than 100 non-profits around the world. Our mission is to help everyone and keep them united, right now we are contacting people via email due to the coronavirus, whereas we usually set up meetings in order to set our mission… In addition to that, I volunteer with Junior Achievement of New York teaching those less fortunate to become the next generation of Entrepreneurs. I am also a District Advocate for the Recording Academy and work to make sure our politicians do what they can to help the Entertainment Industry.”
Rothman continues in his interview with Film Daily, “I am always volunteering for charities and helping teach young musicians and entertainers about the industry. I am also the incoming Co-Chair of UJA’s Young Leaders and joining the organization’s Board of Directors.”
