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).

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.
After his signing he hit the hip-hop scene with a vengeance producing bomb ass single after single including “Tupac’s Back ft. Rick Ross”, “Ima Boss ft.

Hip-hop fans trust me, you will not be disappointed with his new work, the swag, the style and creativity shown within this masterpiece will have you repeating song after song. Well enough of me babbling let me take you on this journey track by track so you can run out a get your copy for your

Beginning in a lower economic class in New York City, Jay-Z used his rapping abilities and talents to catapult himself to the top of not only the popular music charts, but also the music industry as a whole.

I agree with tokenism because it keeps showing up over time and has been proven through many examples.

Lil Wayne raps about the opposite that the Hip Hop pioneers would rap about in the 1990’s.
Hip-Hop artists are the role-models of most African-Americans. As they hear their favorite artists, they want to do the same things as them.
