My favorite genre of music is rap. Rap means the most to me because most artists tell a story with incredible lyrics. I also enjoy listening closely to the beats behind the lyrics. Lyrics mean a lot to me because you get to hear powerful stories or lessons. I love meeting new people and hearing where they came from, or what they have done to be who they are today. Rap is like getting to know someone and hearing the high and low points of their lives. Artists also teach important lessons in their lyrics and state them in very clever ways. I love hearing lines that have creative double meanings. One of the most engaging musicians in my opinion is Kanye West. He is an amazing writer and produces all of his songs which is very rare. He is extremely talented and wise which is why I enjoy listening to him.
My best friend Micah and I were on our way to our friends house on campus last year, listening to all of our favorite songs very loudly. One song came on that had been our go-to for years. We looked at each other and went back and forth reciting the lyrics, getting super into it. When the chorus came we joined together yelling it and dancing intensely like we were front row at a concert. It was so much fun and such an iconic moment.
