Hip-hop is an influential form of music that displays an artist’s honest and revealing story that many of the general public can relate to. One of the many songs that I can relate to is “Love Yourz” written by J Cole. The song talks about how Cole reflects on the most important things in life such as love and happiness. He realizes that the money and fame didn’t bring him the happiness he desired. To gain true happiness, he needed to appreciate himself and those that love him.
The artists attracted white people to their music which was only a step in the movement of whites starting to accept blacks in their communities. Berry Gordy made sure his artists were presentable and that their music would sell to the majority of the population. Whites started listening to Motown’s artists in their homes which helped with the acceptance because whites wanted to see these artists and actually listen to them even though they were black. “Gordy’s self-made ‘rags to riches’ story is a positive example among the usual bleak and unjust stories of African-Americans”(Motown). Berry Gordy used his label for not only music but for his community, he didn’t only care about the money he cared about others.
I got to know him better growing up and he was an essential part to our Speech program. When I would go to Regent’s Burgers & Brats, I knew Steve was grilling before I got there because I could hear his Polka music playing! Steve brought a fun filled mood anywhere he went. Even when he wasn’t feeling well he still was involved. What amazed me most was that he never became negative.
It was funny to hear them talk about hiding out in a funeral home after recording for seven days straight. On the other hand, listening to the interviews of Benny Benjamin’s overdose touched me because of the raw talent he had and then lost. For someone so good to be taken away from what he loves by addiction is one of the saddest
His singular style of play brought joy to millions, and has likewise led to the spread of cultural acceptance mentality that is present in his songs. Dave Matthews was an exceptional player who brought something fresh to the table where the music industry was dominated by rap and grime music. His music, instead of containing lyrics that hold contempt for others, preached acceptance of all polishes. Matthews was also an incredible success with successful multiple visits and a great fan base that allowed Matthews to achieve four platinum albums, and one independent album gold. The music of Dave Matthews preaches acceptance of cultures, and I think Matthews intends to shift the point of persuasion of people about different cultures through his speech.
Everyone had a personal goal for themselves during the civil rights movement. And people connect with that, in his song he mentions that we must live for ourselves “ you've got to live for yourself, yourself and nobody else.” ( I'll go crazy) James Brown music not only represented the struggles of the Black community but also it’s soul power and adds a romantic side to his performance. His songs “ Try Me” and “ I don’t mind”are a perfect example “ I don’t mind, your body and soul, I don’t mind your love.” ( James Brown) He was the type of man that people wanted to hear to fall in love. He was great at expressing his soul and love through his music, which was exactly what the black community had during

He not only succeeds as an artist, but as an activist who supports what he believes in. The song “Wavin’ Flag” is still well-known today, even if the song was released six years ago. He played a huge part for the survival of the Haitian community and the insightful lyrics of his song can be used as motivation to keep going in life among the population, even though times may have been tough. His history and the devastation of the earthquake in Haiti connect when it comes to loss, fear, and hopelessness. In conclusion, K’naan proved his song to being positively influential for those losing strength and is effective at encouraging others to never give up on
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.
• conclusions about the similarities and differences between the two artists “No two rappers rapped the same even when reciting the same rhyme”. (The History Of Hip Hop written by Davey D ).

Time hasn’t affected his vocals as well, he still sounds amazing. His soft voice is still effortless as he hits and escalates from one note to another. The voice is still a really impressive aspect of his sound, but then again this should not be a surprise as he proved himself ages ago. He has been releasing songs here and there over the years but they have not attained as much extolment as his earlier releases. But I am very optimistic about the level of praise “Hollywood Hearts” will attain because it sounds uniquely captivating.

All of them have unique capabilities, but none of them have the qualities of the successful man of the decade, Tyler Perry. Tyler Perry is considered a successful man who has touched others with messages of getting back on your feet when you fall and the importance of family with his entertainment in books, movies, and live plays about the African American culture. Since his movies have been successful with a strong message of family, faith, and forgiveness.

Things I know I love Jay-Z music. I will never be a rapper but I look up to him as a great entrepreneur.
