How Black Skin head got stuck in my head ?
I would assume everyone has a favorite artist or song in their mind. The artist or song you have will remind you or reflect something meaningful. In other occasions it is because of the beat, lyrics, or music video. The song or artist might also inspire or shape the way you feel. For instance, at the moment everyone might be listening to Tekashi 69, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Drake, Migos, etc. Even among these artist I believe that you would have a favorite or popular songs they have. You might think that these artist aren’t the best and that is okay because everyone likes different types of music. There are many different types of Genre such as, Hip Hop, Rock, Rap, Reggae, Pop, Dubstep, etc.
I enjoy Rap music. Rap has rhythm, rhymes speech which is rapping to a beat. Rap was originated in African American communities in New York City. In the late 1980s people saw rap as lyrics that were often glamorized violence and drug dealing. Throughout the years that has evolved or changed. Rap is also seen everywhere now. Such as TV Commercials, TV shows, dance clubs, movies, etc.
The top 5 artist I enjoy are Kanye West, Drake, XXXTentacion, Gucci Mane, and Lil Pump. My top favorite artist is Kanye West. He is an American rapper, song writter, producer, and fashion designer. He is the creator of Yeezy’s. Yeezy’s are really popular now. His music is always changing and I like it so much. Kanye’s music just gets me dancing all the time. I could be anywhere and once I hear the beat drop I catch myself tapping. moving, and humming. I enjoy cleaning my room and listening to kanye. My favorite albums are The Life of Pablo, Ye, Yeezus, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. My favorite song is Black SkinHead on the Yeezus album. The album was released in 2013.
Black SkinHead is available on Itunes, Spotify, Youtube, etc. The video on YouTube has 336K likes. In the music video it shows kanye as some type of black puppet. It also shows animals as aggressive beasts for example their a scene that a Gorilla is growl. The beats are amazing like life flashing before your eyes. This song is very motivational, like if you you’re at the gym and hear this you will get the rhythm and work hard. Or if you’re working on homework this song will give you energy.
This song reflects many things in history. Kanye makes a connection with his music and shares it with the whole world. I feel like his lyrics reflect movies that we have seen or heard about. He also includes how he feels and his opinion in the song. My favorite part of this song is “ Four in the morning, and I’m zoning
They say I’m possessed, it’s an omen
I keep it 300, like the Romans
300 bitches, where’s the Trojans?
Baby we living in the moment
I’ve been a menace for the longest
But I ain’t finished, I’m devoted
And you know it, and you know it
So follow me up cause this shit’s about to go (down)
I’m doing 500, I’m outta control (now)
But there’s nowhere to go (now)
And there’s no way to slow (down)
If I knew what I knew in the past
I would’ve been blacked out on your ass”. This is because it reflects when a person is in the zone, when someone is not tired and just keeps going. The following line refers to the movie 300. Following lines reflect his relationship. I can relate to a relationship where it is only the beginning and there more in store. The following lines go back to speeding. Where one cannot control themselves and act the way they want. I can imagine myself flying or driving so fast.
There are many people that listen to his music and would pay so much money for his concerts. They even pre order his albums at some point. Kanye West has world tours for his concert so he can spread his music and make a mark. He want’s to make a legacy for him self or his children like North West. Or encourage new people to come out and start singing to open their eyes to their full potential. In his concert there are a lot of people singing along and bash onto each other. In addition, there are a lot of little stands to buy merchandise that only sold their no where else because it’s rare. If it is sold on websites or other places is reselling and more money then you would regularly sell. The seat you get to pick but as well what’s the budget you can afford.
He recently gaved money to California wild fires, which shows he’s a warm hearted person. Kanye’s Yeezy and Adidas donated $200,000 to California Community Foundation Wildfire Relief Fund. Also donated $200,000 to the California fire foundation.
