Now it has a positive meaning behind it, such as many colored people calling a close friend there nigga, now it is equivalent to calling them a brother. Another reason it is so popular in today’s music is because of the rhythmic presentation as well as the history that falls behind the word itself. Saying the word for an African American today is like taking away all of the power from everyone else as opposed to allowing to still mean a racist term and affect them negatively. In conclusion, I believe this word that was once used to undermine and degrade many races, has now been empowered. During the Civil Rights Movement it was used in R&B, rap, and rock songs played by African Americans to take out the negativity and portray the emotions they felt about being suppressed and impairer.
Because of the shift Kanye created, he allowed for other rappers and musicians who didn 't fit an exact mold of a genre to become successful within their own right. Each time Kanye releases an album its continuously deemed “his best,” but because Kanye continues to changes his sound or the way society perceives him, he continues to raise the bar for not only himself but for other rappers. Yeezy not only changed the mainstream view of what rap sounds like, but he changed the view on what rappers should look like. He stayed away from the do-rags and low hanging jeans, and opted for the more clean cut and socially accepted option, pink polos. As his sound changed so did his style.
The world has changed a lot with racism and discrimination but there is still more to change. The Civil rights movement impacted many people and places through the time period of 1954-1970s. Living here in the 21st century and learning about the Civil Rights Movement really makes me appreciate every day more and more knowing i don 't have to worry about all of the discrimination, hate, violence, and most importantly disrespect. I personally think every person no matter the color of their skin should be treated the same. People nowadays still discriminate to blacks and other nationalities.
In my opinion, artistic expression impacts the evolvement of Hip Hop most. Hip-hop music was an enthusiastically expression art of music being a way of free expression. It was originated from African-American cultural that initially recognized as the verbal expression of the African-American youth voicing their experiences. For these people, hip-hop was a form of expression for all those feelings that they were refused to say. Now it has become the most powerful form of music and has an influence impact on other cultures all around the world.
This profession a way out of their current situation and now rap becomes their occupation and means to provide. According to Pyatak, & Muccitelli, (2011) Rap music has become a very influential style for artists to express their thoughts throughout the world. Rap is often mistaken for fostering act of violence, illegal drug use, and criminal acts, and notions that Caucasian Americans have more administrative, social, and are born into money more so than African Americans .Economic capital and finances are a major issue among African American rappers. The rap game of the past has evolved and it no longer a boys club where men are the voices of rap. Men and women have emerged as stars but still financial education is lacking.

He wants everyone to know what 's going on and that why he states the fight for job and freedom. I also realized that for the past decade the black mass has been fighting for Their right of speech, and right of freedom.
First, was the role slavery played in drafting the document; second, the Declaration contains an apparent promise of liberty and equality that was unfulfilled for African-Americans before the Civil War and only partially fulfilled after. In his original draft of the Declaration, Thomas Jefferson condemned King George II of England for supporting the slave trade and imposing it on Virginians. This provision has led to the myth that he attempted to attack slavery in the Declaration. Rather, Jefferson’s attack focused on the slave trade. In his draft, he complained that the King had “waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty” by continuing the African slave trade.
Their abstract style of performing hip-hop in this album would one day be influential to other hip-hop artists careers.

Martin Luther King jr. lead the people in the fight for civil rights. He believed in integration of all races and wanted equality for him and his people.

This boycott was known as the Montgomery bus boycott and it was protesting the racial segregation of public transportation.
