Before retiring, his mother was the chair of the English Department at Chicago State University. Like many suburban kids, he developed a passion for hip hop music which enhanced his awareness that the genre often exaggerated bad behavior, which his mother did not approve of. Most of his time was spent experimenting with beats and learning how to play the keyboard. West developed a passion for music, and that eventually led him to meet a Chicago producer by the name of “No I.D.,” who became Kanye’s mentor. Kanye would learn through visits to No I.D.’s house, where he would hold studio sessions with artists.
Back then, when I hear “Hip Hop”, I associated it with egoistic rappers and gang violence. It was my least favorite music genre because rap artists only rap about their shopping list and other meaningless topics. It came to the point where I asked, “What is Hip Hop?” I was so curious that I decided to use it as an English research topic. From that point on, my opinion on Hip Hop changed completely due to the fact that there’s more to it. As I researched on what Hip Hop is, I found out that it isn’t just a music genre, but a massive culture that originated within the Bronx during the 1970s.
Chapter Two of The True Hip-Hop By Shae T. Throughout elementary school, I never really listened to music. I had friends who listened to the Beach Boys and the New Kids On the Block, but I did not care for the style of the Beach Boys or the lyrics of the New Kids On the Block. “The Right Stuff” didn’t seem like the right stuff, at least not the right stuff for me; I thought of Christianity being the right stuff.

For example in his early 20’s, Brand used to partake in these riots, he used to be in the group of protesters, who would march together and fight for their cause. “I often attended protests … I enjoyed it when the protest lost directions and became chaotic”. But now he is no longer a rebellious youngster, he is now rising towards fame, in the luxurious life of LA, wealthy and surrounded with the rest of the Hollywood celebrities, then again you would wonder, what does Russell Brand have to do with all of this? And why would he even care about the riots? Since Brand had lots of experience about this issue from his youth, he uses his knowledge and understandings, from previous riots to understand how this could have gone so far.

Parents, peers, and the entire media can be blamed too b. How we can help make it positive “Starships were meant to fly!” sung by Nicki Minaj, one of the most known music artists in the hip hop industry. What is a starship anyways? These days you can’t tell what artists are thinking when they wear the clothes they wear and say the things they say, but adolescents seem to love it, or even find it amusing. The hip hop culture started back more than a few decades ago, in the late 1960’s.
Risk of the Great Taste of Bud Light: Varieties of businesses use advertising as a way to get their products out into the public so they can sell. Some use different methods of advertising to reach their audience such as billboards, commercial, internet, and even flyers. It is not so easy to say “Hey buy my product.” you have to catch the attention of the audience who you are seeking to sell your products. It has to have reasoning to it and you also have to be able to persuade the audience why should they buy your product or why is your product better than the other competitors.

GANG LEADER FOR A DAY Most people have never dared venture inside a gang selling crack cocaine — not to do research, anyway. But as a 23-year-old grad student in sociology, Sudhir Venkatesh went against the University of Chicago's strident warnings to stay within the bounds of safety, visiting one of the city's notorious housing projects. Armed with only a clipboard and a survey on what it meant to be poor and black in America, Venkatesh was promptly taken hostage. Instead of being put off for good, he returned the next day with a better set of questions and wound up hanging out there for seven years to get the answers. The result is his new book, Gang Leader for a Day.
My parent made me realize that Osun is just a handmade God and he will perish one day. On the other hand, my grandparents cherish and respect their deity to the extent that an elaborate festival is done every two months to honor Osun. During the festival, everyone has to be in white wrapper, including the male, beads are placed on the neck and waists of the females, and they have to carry a calabash on their head and walk around the village singing and dancing. I attended the festival ones but i didn’t participate in any of the activities. In contrast, my parent belief in Islam, and they make us go to mosque every Friday and Sunday.
