He uses hyperboles to drive home the point that he is the best rapper alive. He doesn’t even have to diss the other rappers, because they are already making mistakes, falling behind and ruining their careers without any help from him. Compton, California is extremely famous around the nation for gang violence, rap music, and producing professional athletes. Kendrick is putting Compton back on the map in the music industry and is trying to have a positive effect on the community through his songs. His songs often speak of stopping gang violence.
If Martin Luther King caused to many problems why would Kennedy help him? King also helped out many cities besides just his own. MLK did not just focus on himself he did what was good for everyone. The one thing King did not want was that for things to get violent, so what he said was,” Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” If there were problems in the society it was for the better good, because of what he did 53 years ago we now have peace between the races in the United
Cadogan thought growing up in the rough streets of Jamaica would have prepared him for whatever dangers here could have faced in America… but he could have never been prepared. In Jamaica everyone is, for the most part, black so racial tensions never were a problem. When Cadogan arrived in America he did not judge based on skin but on character, so he did not know the stereotypes black people dealt with. While Jamaica did not prepare Cadogan for the racial injustices he was going to face he did give him the mental toughness to deal with
Of all the songwriters in the history of popular music, no artist has left a bigger impact than Bob Dylan. With beautifully crafted lyrics that require deep scrutiny and analysis in order to be understood, Dylan pushed the boundaries of songwriting and made people think differently about the world they lived in. Right from the beginning with his first album recorded in 1962, Dylan refused to go along with the simple songwriting that was popular at the time. He said what he wanted and was not afraid of what people would think. If anything, he was assertive, in a way telling people that they should listen to what he had to say, and that those who criticized were not looking hard enough at the song.
Which in a way connects to what Dr. Martin Luther King was trying to do during the civil rights movement. His album “ Live at the Apollo” almost didn’t happen because King Records refuse to pay for a live album which was very expensive to record at that time. James Brown turned away from them and put his own money on the table to produce one of the best live albums ever. He was a creative and intelligent businessman and artist. With the help of his
Justin Bieber is an example of a modern day tragic hero. Justin's error of judgement was revealed when he defaced a photo of the former president Bill Clinton. This is important because Justin is not even from America so the least he can do to support he country is to respect the presidents. Additionally, he experienced fate greater than deserved, when his mug shots were taken after his drag race under the influence. Due to his actions he thought everyone loved him and nothing would happen, and nothing did.
He never recovered. Maybe even without all those incidents, especially his father’s death, he could have been the same person he turned out to be. I will never be able to know that for sure as I do not know him in person and is not a prophet. However, regarding the aforementioned musical aspects of his life, Phil Spector is worthy of respect as a music producer. Indeed, even though I cannot like him as a person for the murder and his other wrongdoings due to his instabilities, I respect him for his musical accomplishments and

Martin Luther King did not give up, because he defied a court order that banned him from hosting another march. (CD) Because he was courageous, the second Selma march was a success. If he did not have courage, African Americans may have never had protection while voting. Martin Luther King was courageous enough to continue marching and protesting even though he got arrested 20 times. To sum up, Martin Luther King had courage during his pursuit of
Although John Brown knew that violence was not the way to back up his actions because he had saved many slaves without anyone getting hurt he did so anyway. The raid on Harpers Ferry was an event where John Brown and a few of his followers used violence for a cause that could benefit them. They tried to take items that could help form a slave rebellion. John Brown didn’t overuse the control of violence, he only did it to try and help the save get the freedom he thought they
Martian Luther King Jr who was practicing his right to travel throughout this free country, these victims were doing nothing illegal. MLK brought up the concern from the governance of his/their “willingness to break laws” while urging his followers to simply “Obey the Supreme Court 's decision of 1954 outlawing segregation..” (8) This statement alone influenced my choice of article, in a day that society is crumbling innocent people are dying. If Martian Luther King Junior was alive today there would be nonstop protests until police followed the
