Long Island, New York has cultivated many hip-hop talents in creating masterpieces of hip-hop songs. For example, rap crew Public Enemy’s Fight the power, hip-hop trio De La Soul’s Me, Myself and I, and Eric B and Rakim’s Follow the Leader. All of these songs had great influence over the future hip-hop generations, yet the ones that stood out to me were Public Enemy’s Fight the Power and De La Soul’s Me, Myself, and I. Fight the Power was produced by Public Enemy’s production team The Bomb Squad, and Me, Myself and I was produced by De La Soul and Prince Paul. Although two songs were both released in 1989, they offered different insights for listeners.
Not everyone thinks this is a problem, but more of a solution to help promote their thoughts and opinions about major issues occurring in the world.

Dave Barry In society today, people are becoming more and more easily offended. A simple joke is often times blown way out of proportion instead of being laughed off and taken as just that. Dave Barry, a comedic essayist, understands that idea, which is why he uses self-deprecating humor to distract the readers from the fact that he is making fun of them. Along with the use of sarcasm and hyperboles, this form of humor is, at times, relatable and allows him to get certain points across without offending his readers. In one of his Essays, “Decaf Poopacino”, he is making fun of the fact that Americans order the craziest drinks when at coffee shops.
King Kunta: The Rise of a Kid That Had Nothing The song “King Kunta” by rapper Kendrick Lamar is very catchy song about Kendrick’s rise to the top of the rap game and the his resistance to selling out like many rappers do. He really uses ethos strongly in this song to get people to listen to what he is saying and to get his message across to those people. His audience is mainly young people between the ages of 15 and 30, but his music reaches a very wide spread community of people. The name of the song, “King Kunta”, is an oxymoron - Kendrick thinks he is still being oppressed like a slave, while still being dominant and rich like a king. It contrasts the lowest and the highest levels of society.
James Nugent 16 July 2015 The Legitimacy of Sampling Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick, two of hip-hop 's biggest legends collaborated in the early months of 1984 to create one of the most influential songs ever.

The practice of sampling was discovered by early 1970’s DJs who played around with manipulating vinyl on two turntables
Gorshtenin 1 Yan Gorshtenin Ms. Kreycik English II March 9 2016 The Pro’s and Con’s of Rap in our culture Just as the twentieth century had rock, jazz and disco, the twentieth century in which we live now revolves around hip-hop and our culture is defined by it. Hip-hop has much success for anyone who is producing, but means to me the difference between culture difference and success. Hip hop means good times and uplifting (words in a song). It means letting go of the past and looking forward to the future. It means closing your eyes and having feelings that can make you see things in a beautiful light.

His pride overwhelmed his sensibility and he responded out of ignorance to all situations involving his power. Like Meneius, whose "belly speech" reflects a disdain for the common man, Coriolanus rejected Brutus and others who might have helped him. He refused to accept social cooperation because of his distorted sense of social reality. Without the burden of pride, Coriolanus might have achieved more success in fulfilling social order among his people. Yet Coriolanus is not the tragic hero.
Whether it was concerts, clothing, or albums, my parents encouraged my participation in the hip hop culture. As a Hip Hop Head, time and time again I have related to a lyric in song.

Instead there are thousands of people that know exactly what that Head is going through.

When it comes to National Security and Defense the United States gets involved for gain however they state its due to necessity. This is the reason we are losing so many. Instead of fixing the issues that exist in the United States which is actually necessary, like fixing our corrupt government, we are fighting in other counties, with matters that do not concern us.
