Cole is my favorite rapper at the moment, he just has a different appeal to him compared to all the new rappers. What I particularly enjoy about the album is the rawness and openness of it. The combination of Cole's transparency and charisma will have you dancing in the club, sympathizing with the starving artist, and cheering for the dreamer by the time you reach the end of the disc. Through his own life story he also touches on important issues within our communities today such as abortion, single parent homes, and the responsibilities it takes to be a man. If you're a fan of J.

Tupac had a passion for rap. He spoke from his heart even if it didn’t really come out the right way; he still managed to put in to terms.

Many people think they are dumb and pointless, while others get a hilarious laugh at the stereotypes and “paying mock tribute to the unsung heroes” (www.usatoday.com) of the particular ad, whatever it may be. Over the course of this essay, the stereotypes aimed at the male gender and the points of the ads will be discussed as well in hopes of shedding some light on a great ad that a lot of people don’t understand. The stereotypes in the Bud Light ads are aimed towards the male gender and the “unsung heroes” of America. The “unsung heroes” are the inventors or facilitators of the great things that all men have come to love in America.

Lupe Fiasco’s the Cool is the follow up from his debut album “Food and Liquor” and is nothing short of captivating. This album flows from beginning to end where no two songs are alike.

Game talks about his mentor Dr. Dre , while Busta Rhymes is trying somehow to tell him that it's key.

To me he had something important to say and expressed it in this album.
