He has a very recognizable voice and the lyrics he writes are usually over the top. I think he probably gets high and just spits out the words whether they make sense or not. He repeats his lines a lot and if he wrote them down, he probably wouldn't do that, but no matter what, he spits out the rhymes like it's nothing. I like the fact that Lil Wayne raps about real life. He raps about the hottest clothes, cars, partying, and women.
Where Hip Hop Began Steven Keo ITT Technical Institute Mr. Steve Ryan 9/18/12 Where Hip Hop Began Hip hop has become one of the most loved genres when it comes to music in this day and age. Many fans are quite clueless of where the actual roots came from and who the originators or founding fathers were. The earliest trace of the birth of hip hop’s movement and culture dated back in the late sixties. Everyone can agree that the birthplace of hip hop was on the east coast, but what parts? Everybody knows the hip hop moguls of the nineties such as; Biggies Smalls, Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Jay Z, and Snoop Dogg, but who were the pioneers?
That’s why music is so much heavier than anything you ever felt” (Sinclair 31). That attitude resonants throughout his music and is the challenge that makes it impossible to put Hendrix to rest. Through it all the music is just as fresh now as it was then with its grasp of emphatic technique and bluesy lyricism that people just keep coming back to. By blending all of his musical qualities like jazz, blues, and rock together Hendrix opened music up to a tremendous audience of rising musicians in his era and now today. Of all the performers of the 60's, Hendrix was the most influential in the world of music.
The Life of Malcolm X Malcolm X was born on the nineteenth of May, in the year 1925. He was one among those that ever eXperienced the worst human chronicle in transformation of the annals of African American History. His struggle showed a testimony that one can rise above all forces of oppression and intimidation and become liberated and successful. Many African Americans today get their motivation from Malcolm X (Campbell and HuXman, 2008). Malcolm X’s popularity is still everywhere throughout the world today.
The two main ones are simply ‘Old school hip-hop’ and ‘New School hip-hop’. Now days New School is definitely much more widely adopted up by society, but there are still the classic fans of old school Hip-hop. The pop culture is has evolved into is almost everything you see, and everywhere you look. From big time celebrities all the way to the real hard street life. Rap music has turned into a multi billion dollar industry.
When he released his first hit, "I Can't Live Without My Radio," in 1985 when he was just 17 years old, LL came out to be a hard-hitting, streetwise b-boy with spare beats and ballistic rhymes (Internet Source). But he soon quickly developed a smoother R&B style and began putting out what is known as lover's rap by putting out his hit single "I Need Love." LL dropped out of high school and recorded his debut album, Radio. When it was released in 1985, Radio was a major hit. From momentum of "I Can't Live Without My Radio" and "Rock the Bells," the album went platinum in 1986.
To me the DJ played an even more instrumental part in that he helped to unify people. The block parties were helpful in bringing whole communities together, which they wouldn’t have been if it wasn’t for the DJs. Since the DJs were using turntables for scratching and mixing it only makes sense that sampling would be involved. One thing I learned in class was that “ Rapper’s Delight” ( what I’ve always known to be the first rap song) was a sample from “ Good times” The DJ has the most important
“The Early life of Tupac Amaru Shakur” Who is the greatest rapper of all time? Now this a opinionated question and the answer really has no right or wrong. But it’s not that hard for us to determine that Tupac Shakur is one of the most successful and prolific rappers of all time. After all, not only did he modernize the modern day rap industry, he also revolutionized it. But how many of Tupac’s fans and followers have actually taken the time to know his life’s story before he became famous, before he became rich, and before he set the standard of what all West Coast rappers should or should not be.
That is why Lil Wayne isn’t a role model like he says he is. The greatest speaks for the people, that is how the Hip Hop culture works, regardless of what anyone says any genre or median the greatest always speaks for the people. Tupac would always show his love to the people and would include his fans to his music videos. Public Enemy a rap duo would express their feelings towards police brutality, violence, and drug abuse. Lil Wayne raps about the opposite that the Hip Hop pioneers would rap about in the 1990’s.
The two biggest names in hip hop by far are Tupac Shakur and The notorious B.I.G. these two were the most amazing rappers that have ever picked up a mic. They would tell stories and rap about thug life and how life is on the streets. That things were hard and they had to struggle to survive. Music has so many things to offer and tell
