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.
He now understands that in a horrible situation you can either decide to let life take its course or take control and choose you own outcome. Secondly, the lyric “All the hate that you've heard has turned your spirit to a dove” is explaining how all the hate and pain he has endured has empowered him to overcome the criticism and be at peace with himself (Dragons). Another example of a literary device is “Falling like ashes to ground/ hoping my feeling they would drown” (Dragons). This is a perfect metaphor to describe how he felt in that moment. The lyric hints that he was depressed and didn't know how to handle the situation.

Listening to songs like "Warning" and envisioning a giant super hero defending himself from evil. "Big Poppa" had me waving my hands in the air when I still thought girls had cooties.

Her mother died when she was only a few months old and her father was never seen by her. Her sisters disappeared and she was left alone.

The Art of Song vs The Art of Poetry “Set your goals high and don’t stop until you get there” (Bo Jackson). Goal setting is the first thing in becoming successful in life. The song “Forever” by Drake, Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West is about how these rappers came from nothing and build up their careers by setting goals for themselves and never giving up on those goals until they were achieved. The poem “A Goal In Life” has a very similar message. This poem is about a man who made a goal for himself, he explains his steps and how he made and accomplished that goal.

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. Released in 1985, on the B-side to The Show, "La Di Da Di" garnered considerable media attention, making it one of the earliest rap songs to blow up nationwide.
