Rappers and drugs automatically get related not only because we see them using drugs but because in the majority of their songs that’s all they talk about. Rappers say they use drugs to help with their creativity in the making of their lyrics. Most rappers don’t write their own lyrics, so automatically their is questioning. Drugs have been a part of rap and many other genres of music since the beginning. People say that drugs are not a part of the music anymore but “In pop music cocaine never went away.
In rap terms, a bar is two lines that rhyme ... ... middle of paper ... ... that freestyling is still carrying weight in rap culture. Although the freestyles they release aren't what they say they are that label "freestyle" is important. But not as important as the written material they release on an album. Album sales are what keep rappers famous and record labels happy. Since the freestyles aren't real this means the rapper can't freestyle that well but wishes they could.
The raps he wrote had a deeper meaning then just being words. When listened closely you get an image on events or his thoughts which also made him way different from other rappers. He had the ability to narrative through his music. Never sugar-coated anything he said, always kept it the raw sometimes cold truth. Biggies voice had a different sound to it, like his voice was humid, plummy and wheezy.
Belly Belly is one of the most controversial films in America. It is one of the most technically polished Hip-hop films to date. Does it have great acting? No, it does not, but DMX as “Boz” has a solid performance while the other actors do a believable job considering they are by nature rappers and not actors. A good action movie?
When people think of hip-hop music they think of violent rap that's talking about killing and raping. Not all hip-hop is like that though. It's not necessary to use obscenities or to speak of murder or drugs to be a good rapper. For some reason violence, sex, crime, and drugs are associated with rap. Rappers feel that they have to take on this gangster image in order to succeed.
Rap and hip-hop is an artistic mirror reflecting society, which is violent in some places, and needs not a moral dismemberment via the glorification of fictional violence. The history of hip-hop has some sting to it, being that deaths have been caused and childhoods are under affect; the actions that younger listeners who enjoy hip-hop are not influenced by the songs or the artists, but only by perception of their surroundings. All that hinders a strong faith in hip-hop is its “gangsta rap” counterpart. Violence is a reaction, not an action. Hip-hop started out as a parade of songs that were celebration-suitable, stemming from artists such as LL Cool J and Marky Mark.
The history of both hip-hop and rap is lined with unforgettable names like Biggie Smalls, Tupac, and others who have died and left us with their music, but their time is up. It is also extremely important to remember that rap and hip-hop were not always as popular as they are today. DJ Grandmaster Flash was once asked about the early days of rap and he responded, "Rap is like the polio vaccine. At first no one believed in it. Then, once they knew it worked, everyone wanted it,” (Small 1992: 4) which just goes to show that even those who we considered pioneers of the industry today were not necessarily accepted and popular in their earliest days.
but in reality it had been able to have the politicians, adult's and people who didn't even listen and enjoyed rap music allowed Tupac and all the other that he spoke for to become recognised. Tupac was able to make an impact on those who did not even listen to rap music and have biased opinions to thole like Tupac. At first look, Tupac may not appear to be versatile to a man who had just heard Shakur's fight rap but Tupac was one of the most versatile rappers in the industry. In the event that you track back his career back to when his name was originally MC New York, you will see the various rap styles he really had. Melodies like Young Black Male are altogether different from his more well known tunes like Dear Mama and California Love.
That is correct, and probably the biggest and most popular part of hip-hop, but that’s only part of the puzzle. Most followers and those who dislike hip-hop, forget the movement and aspects of the lifestyle. Many people don’t realize that the break dancing, graffiti art, DJing and beat boxing are part of hip-hop too. Like I mentioned before, you can just say that hip-hop is just a form of music where someone is rapping and that it is all the same. I say that if you say that, you are pretty ignorant to see what the truth about what it really is.
What is it that makes Hip Hop so powerful? And how is that it is viewed in the medias eyes different from actual reality? As a result of all the different stereotypes, a lot of people see Hip Hop as only a genre of music only embodied of shallow and violent alpha males producing ludicrous, vulgar and explicit lyrics about sex, guns drugs, devaluing women, money and about how the “Thug Life” is the only life. Just like anything in the world you can always choose to value the positive and negative. The media only decides to weigh in on only the negative v... ... middle of paper ... ...this?
