He was brought up with a strong political view. According to Fiasco himself “He explained that his father's political activism and involvement with the Black Panther party shaped his lyrics and socially conscious message”. His father was also a drummer. His mom was a gourmet chef. When he first got into rap the genre that was trending was gangster rap.

But my favorite rendition of The Joker has to be the joker from "The Dark Knight" by Christopher Nolan. In this rendition of the Joker he has a scared smile from a back story that is vague. With three different stories on how he got the scars it each story gets different scarier and brutal. From all the jokers that have been created this is the greatest one because it is the most human version possible. With many fan theories on why he is the way he is personally I don 't care why he is that way because I admire the chaos he brings to the street of Gotham.
Although they take place in two disparate eras, “Macbeth” by William Shakespeare and “Many Men” by 50 Cent have some semblance. In the play of Macbeth, the character Macbeth does everything in his power, without any moral intervention, to becoming king, a position in which he believes he is prophetically destined for. The rapper 50 Cent creates a rap called “Many Men” in which he shares a mind with Macbeth. While they seem different externally, the two works share the concepts of ego and prophecy, violence, and betrayal. In terms of ego and prophecy, the character of Macbeth and 50 Cent are very similar.
This is more or less his story, and he carries this entire film on his shoulders, despite having very few films under his belt, this actor is going to be one to look out for in the coming years. The same can be said for the actor who plays Eazy-E, Jason Mitchell. This young man stole the entire film, though I think O’Shea Jackson Jr. gave the best performance of the film, I think Mitchell’s is my favorite. He expertly portrays Eazy-E with the signature gangster swagger, but he matches it with the kindness that you only hear about in interviews. Eazy-E was reportedly a very kind and caring person, despite what the media would have you believe, and you don’t really see that often from a rapper, and the way Mitchell perfectly captured the kindness without conflicting the tough
There was a lot of pressure for the team of “All Eyez on Me” to deliver an accurate depiction of the life of rapper Tupac Shakur. How would audiences differentiate between the galvanic youth who quoted Shakespeare and the confounding figure convicted of sexual abuse and fatally shot at the age of 25? Could Demetrius Shipp Jr. carry the charisma and deliver the performance 2Pac fans have long waited for? Benny Boom’s fictionalized biopic is somewhat lackluster but definitely worth more than the 22 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. It is a movie lifted by the sympathetic performance of its lead actor and lyrics of its title character.
My focus poem is “HiiiPower” and my poet is Kendrick Lamar. His full name is Kendrick Lamar Duckworth, he’s better known as his stage name Kedrick Lamar formerly known as K-Dot. He was born in Compton, California on June 17, 1987. As the presence of the 1980s crack trade and West Coast gang activity increased, Lamar grew up around a lot of gang violence, but he seemed more influenced than harmed by it. He attended Centennial High School as a teenager and he was a straight-A student.
HIP-HOP VS R&B Hip-Hop music, also called hip-hop is a musical genre that was first brought to the United States by inner-city African Americans in the 1970s. Hip-hop is a form of music that incorporates various styles such as rapping, which is defined as a rhythmic and rhyming speech that is chanted. In studying and dancing hip-hop, it is important to that it is defined by four elements that are scratching (DJing), rapping (MCing), graffiti writing, and break dancing. To tap into some historical facts about hip-hop, it was highly popularized when block parties were a big thing back in the 70s in New York City (Bronx). Being most popularized in the Bronx, DJs back then introduced turntables to play percussive breaks of mainstream songs.
Skinheads gained much inspiration from reggae music, which Combo admits to with Milky when he says ‘it was people like your uncle that introduced that stuff to me’. The music scene was changing fast which also led to the decline of skinheads. Reggae’s influence on the subculture is seen more when Combo talks about how the music ‘resonated’ with original skinheads. We can see the struggle of skinheads to keep old traditions and culture alive. Another important scene in the movie is when Woody doesn’t stand up for Milky (brown skinhead) when Combo talks about his ‘cigar fingers’, ‘Sweaty black hands’ and calls him a ‘Wog’.
