However, this ebook will answer that question in a more complicated way. I am interested in how mathematics "works" -- in some sense I am interested in how Mathematics is implemented as a language, whereas most just "use" it and are not interested on examining it in detail or systematically.
We can look at rappers and, by describing their musical and rhythmic tendencies, group them into different categories, and then say who manipulates rhythms most masterfully.
That is exactly what will happen in this article. Ultimately, who is good and who is bad will be left up to the listener, but I know what I prefer, and will offer my value judgments based on what I believe to be the core, fundamental principles underlying all good rap. Whether they repeat certain rhythms, or keep making new rhythms as they go long.
This is because Kanye West is, comparatively, a technically simple rapper when compared to the likes of Eminem, Mos Def, Nas, and Andre 3k. This is because, according to our 4 categories, he: A bunch of bars together make a verse or hook, and the verses and hooks together make a song. These are also important for categorizing our rappers.
They come at the end of sentences, like what follows: Meanwhile, they are usually 1 or 2 syllables long, and there are only 1 or 2 per bar: Finally, the order of rhymed syllables is always the same order and in the same place in the bar. Furthermore, they fall in the same place in the bar.
This is reflected graphically in the notation above by the fact that all of the capitalized rhymes are in the same place in terms of length from the start of the bar, which you can see for yourself.
And as we will see, these type of rhymes — end rhymes, 1 or 2 syllables long, always in the same order, are not always the case for rappers, and definitely not the case for most of the rappers who will follow.
Has relatively long sentences that abide by the bar line. This is also well represented by the graph: They, for the most part, come to a stop right before the bar line. Here, the slurred lines represent grammatical fragments only nouns or verbs unconnected to each otherwhich sometimes happens as well.
This is hard to conceive of in a negative instance, and it will be placed into much clearer relief when we examine Andre 3k, who DOES repeat characteristic ideas. Furthermore, his sentence structure largely follows the bar line, and his rhymes are through-composed, making no use of rhythmic phrases.
Please note that I still think Kanye is a really good rapper — probably Top 10 all time, just not in technical ability. In fact, College Dropout is full of great puns like that.
But technically, he is not complex. Next, we will look at Mos Def. What can we say about his style of rap?
As it turns out, Mos Def is similar to Kanye West in some ways, but very different in others. The biggest difference is in his approach to rhyming: However, he quickly varies this: However, similar to Kanye, the rhymed vowel sounds always come in the same order: One final way they are different in terms of rhymes is in the rate of rhymes dropped per bar.Analysis 1 Analysis 2 Song Analysis Analysis 1 Common throughout the song is relating his life with rap and how the history of rap has changed.
When Common says, "A few New York niggaz, had did her in the park." In the first few lines I think he is establishing that he is a powerful rapper who has come a long way from the streets that.
Chemical analysis - Classical methods: The majority of the classical analytical methods rely on chemical reactions to perform an analysis.
In contrast, instrumental methods typically depend on the measurement of a physical property of the analyte. Classical qualitative analysis is performed by adding one or a series of chemical reagents to the analyte. Tupac Shakur's "Changes" Analysis Tupac has always stood out in the rap game because of his ability to be poetic while being a gangster rapper at the same time.
