#My Driving Question and Thesis

Driving Question: What was the beginning of rap

Thesis: Rap was originally some dudes trying to get money to support their family, but then people made it big so then everyone try to do it and that is how we have some of the amazing artist today


The beginning of rap was a few dudes trying to get money to support there family's as they progressed that is exact what they did. This group was called N.W.A I will not say what it stands for but they all wanted to get into the music career more than slinging dope on the corner. Then when they made it big everyone wanted too, and that is how we got all the great artist we have today

2Pac California Love (Clean Version)


This song is Called "California Love" By: Tupac and Dr. Dre


N.W.A was a rap group that was big in 1986 through 1991. They were the first people who made it big and inspired the many rappers that we have today. They broke up because the main artist( Easy-E) died of STD's. Eventually they just stopped making music but did there own thing for example: Ice cube made music, Dr. dre still makes music.
