Exploring the men, women, and motivations behind your favorite hip-hop music.
What Would R&B and Hip-Hop Be Without Black Women?
R&B and Hip Hop might not be my favorite genres but, there are quite a few black women in these genres that I would like to put a spotlight on because r&b and hip hop wouldn't still exist if it weren't for them and I do love them. Some of these women are part black and quite a few are from New York[my hometown state]. Most of these women you've likely heard of but others you might want to check out their music after you read this.
Reason First: Is 50 Cent Right for Defending Eminem Against Lord Jamar?
Ultimate troll, 50 Cent bandied words at Lord Jamar over the latter legendary rapper's comments concerning Eminem. While some may call it “caping” for the white man, there is good cause that 50 engaged in a verbal sparring session on Instagram. 50 Cent signed an unprecedented at the time, one million dollar contract as a joint venture between Eminem’s Shady Records and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment. Through years of falling out with the rapper Game, to Young Buck, and splitting ties with Lloyd Banks, 50 Cent and Eminem have remained tight. Together, the two men have earned the respect of most figures within the hip hop universe. That is, of course, except for Lord Jamar. He has gone on the record saying that black people don’t listen to Eminem’s music. But is this true? In the gym, as Lord Jamar has indicated, Eminem is not blasted through earbuds. What about Eminem’s Oscar-winning ode to overcoming adversity “Lose Yourself”? Does Jamar not know that African Americans get pumped up to the Recovery rapper? Is this true? On the excursion to the club, are black people not gearing up for a good night by listening to “Greatest” while wood grain grippin’? Don’t clubs still vibrate with the sound of “Shake That,” Eminem’s song with the late Nate Dogg and “Smack That” with Akon? 50 Cent is a master at challenging anyone who crosses him or his values. He goes on Instagram saying that Lord Jamar was already deceased and that Lord Jamar is no “Grand Puba” anyway. 50 Cent has spit venomous bars on tracks but his words on social media have just as much toxicity.
Rhetorical Analysis Of Hip-hop
Note: I wrote this paper for my final English class at Georgia State University. "Rhetorical Analysis"
Quiet Kid Loud Sound
So my name is Regi and I want to be a future rapper and producer not for no big label but to have my own label so I can help upcoming artists to come out and help them in needs. Most of the time I'm normally making beats and writing my lyrics but I mostly get my inspiration from Kendrick Lamar, J Cole, and many more. When I was a sophomore in high school one of my closets friend show me FL Studio. I was interested of making music but no one would give me the chance to make any songs with them. So for me when I want something I go out there and work hard for it. So I decided to make my own beats and that was when she show me FL, she was still learning but she mostly help me grow into a producer but not as a beat maker. After she show me until even now I have been getting a lot of calls from people who wants to make records with me but in the title of course I'm making my own beat tape by myself.

How the Brooklyn Drill movement is NY's most unique contribution to rap
Would it be crazy for me to say, out of all of New York’s contributions to rap — and trust me there’s A LOT of them — what I’m going to share is it most unique ever? Now keep in mind, what I said: Unique. Not greatest. Not the biggest. Heck, I didn’t even say most influential. All I plan on doing is explaining how a sub-genre within New York’s huge rap scene became its most important sound, during this rapidly-growing time in our culture.
