It’s no secret that rap music changed the face of music. What made it so special was that it made the musicians themselves wealthy, but it influenced a generation of youth that has impacted history.
It is said to be the most influential genre and even responsible for the emergence of all other music types.
The development of rap music is, in a way, a reflection of a changing America. Many of the biggest names in hip hop, such as T.I. and Jay-Z, used it as a tool to tell their stories in a way that only they could.
Their acts were urban, and their vocabulary was complex, but they managed to capture millions’ hearts and minds. Hip hop has become a lot more mainstream and is played in every club, home, and high school.
This made it possible for many artists to live the lifestyle of what they were portraying. T.I., for example, lives the life of a thug, but he uses the label of the thug for his own benefit and says it’s an asset for himself.
He started wearing furs, listened to big beat music, and regularly got in fights. This image made it difficult for him to build a serious musical career, but he could use rap music to his advantage and become extremely popular.
Jay-Z, on the other hand, was a very “big” man in his early career. Being extremely young, he ran with a crew of other talented young guys.
He had this dream that he wanted to turn into a reality. They partied a lot, but it was pronounced they were never going to make any money.
So one day, they all decided to go to this strip club to see what the hype was about, and Jay ended up getting a lap dance and dropping $2000 on her. He left in a hurry, but it was later realized that she left her card with him.
He went back to the club, bought her a round of drinks, and danced for her. She saw this as a sign of goodwill and liked the impression he made.
She asked him to come back to her apartment, but Jay decided to keep it going by inviting all of them to a party he was throwing at his crib. Once Jay got a crowd, he would sing his story.
Many people got into his act, and the performance got more exciting as it went on. He was even hired to do a radio spot, and the producer thought the whole performance was authentic.
Jay-Z was famous!
Like many of his predecessors, Jay-Z perfected his craft. He used it to his advantage and became one of the most successful rappers of all time.
You can actually see it in his style. He’s much more understated and straightforward but still loves the spotlight.
He’s made millions of dollars and launched his own recording label. It’s all he has ever known. In fact, most of the songs he made were given to him for free.
He’s not doing it for the money; he’s doing it for the love of it. A fan can literally go to his website and download a free copy of his new album “4:44.”
Many people don’t realize that it costs money to record an album, and Jay-Z hasn’t been shy about it in the past. He’s on track to becoming one of the wealthiest rappers in history.
In fact, he’s already been the highest-paid artist for over ten years. What else do you expect when you’re a millionaire.
Most of his music deals with what his life is like and how he has overcome obstacles. This is what made the music of Jay-Z so popular.
It wasn’t just about his songwriting skills. He also played the role of a rapper.
He mixed the old-style rap music with newer beats and modern music. In that sense, he was a role model.
He’s not just rapping about his wealth or what it feels like to have women falling at his feet. His songs are about real problems that people of all walks of life go through.
This is why the album he just released is so amazing. You can hear how much he has grown in a few short years.
He’s as comfortable rapping on his new album as he was back in the 90s.
You can literally hear it in his voice. He’s completely different from his past raps and even different than he was during his prime.
He’s matured into a professional and is more confident. We’ve never heard him take as long to rap on one track before.
His lyrics are in a much better place than they were when he first started making music. It’s much more natural and in touch with what he really means when he says certain things.
He has a way of making you feel as if he has your back. His fans love this, but some critics don’t like it.
They say that Jay-Z is too generic and that it’s obvious he’s trying to appeal to as many people as he can. If it’s about nothing more than his wealth and fame, it’s doing a poor job.
It doesn’t have to be your way or the highway if you’re trying to reach out to as many people as possible.
There are a lot of rap artists that put their money and power before their music. Even his good friend Drake went through a stretch where he didn’t make music.
At the end of the day, you can’t put all your eggs in one basket. Jay-Z is as successful as he is, proving that you can be a millionaire and still rap about real problems.
It doesn’t matter if you’re famous or not, you can still influence many people with your music. Jay-Z is still recording music and still putting it out for free. It’s not like it costs him any money to do so.
It’s all about the love of it and the love of the fans. He’s not worried about becoming famous; he’s worried about making music.
