Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  Themes: Hi-Lo, urban nonfiction, music, entrepreneur, Hip-Hop, celebrities, biographies. Themes: Hi-Lo, urban nonfiction, music, entrepreneur, Hip-Hop, celebrities, biographies. There's no doubt about it, today's students listen to an average of 2.5 hours of music every day. Guess what they are listening to? Hip-hop is mainstream, continually topping Billboard's Hot 100 charts. These hi-lo biographies engage striving readers from the very beginning with blinged-out covers, stunning four-color photographs, modern and graphic page design, and high-interest informational text. Biographies highlight the unique characteristics of each mega-rapper, including childhood struggles, personal style, rivalries, giving back, and more. Each 48-page paperback book includes a timeline and glossary, with vocabulary words highlighted throughout. Kanye West is known as an overconfident musician and fashion designer. He is considered a genius by many in the music business. He produced mega hits for Jay-Z, Ludacris, and Common. Kanye calls himself the voice of a generation. He said, "Someone could be a better rapper, dance better. But culturally impacting? When you look back ... who's the icon at the end of the day?"
