TED TALKS (Is the music of today good or bad)

This ted talks is about rap music and how he thinks that rap is the worst influence on children and sends a very obnoxious message to these children. He also says that he doesn’t listen to to that much music so he is not a very credible person to talk about rap music. Rap musicians and lyrics say a lot of things that can be interpreted wrong but what people need to do is pay more attention to what the lyrics are really saying.



Notorious BIG (Juicy)

Notorious BIG is a story telling rapper. When you hear his rhymes he is very descriptive in what he is saying. It’s like you were right there when it happen as you listen to him speak. When the first verse in the song juicy is over the group Total starts singing the chorus. The words to the chorus are:
You know very well who you are
Don’t let em hold you down, reach for the stars
You had a goal, but not that many
’cause you’re the only one I’ll give you good and plenty

All of Notorious BIG’s lyrics mean something in his life story and that is why it is so easy to figure out what he is trying to say.

MA Blog


My MA Blog is mainly based around music. I listen to music during anything I do. Different music can do many different things such as calm you down or pump you up. I think I will be doing my topic on either Notorious BIG, Kendrick Lamar, or A$AP Rockie because these are my three all time favorite hip/hop musicians that have changed the way I look at music and life.


My Blog

Hi, Im Demetre and I will hopefully be doing my topic on Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick Lamar is just recently starting to get big but he has been by far my favorite musician and he has been since he started out. I want to learn more about him and his come up. Kendrick is very easy to listen to and and I think it is almost unfair to other hip hop rap musicians because he is so lyrical and amazing at what he does.
