My favorite genre of music is rap, because it has many different expressions. For example, Tupac and Eminem rapped about hardship, and the struggles of being in the hood. School boy q and the Weekend rap about having good times, partying with friends, and living the good life. Miguel and Jason Duerulo rap about being and love. I enjoy the versatility of this genre, and being able to hear a story throughout the songs.
My favorite artist right now is Tory Lanz, because his music is mood changing and the content of his music is extremely creative. He has a little bit of every category. He raps about hype partying, being in love, hardship, and some of his personal experiences. He has a song for pretty much any mood I find myself in throughout the day.
For the past three years I have been going down to Ohio University for Numbers Fest which is a huge music fest where multiple artist come down to Athens and preform in one night. The experience has been life changing every year, but the year I remember the most was two summers ago when School Boy was there. When he played his song “Hell of a night” the crowd exploded. People were singing along so loudly I could barely hear him singing it. This made me love this genre of music so much more, because it is a good way to bring people together. I had the opportunity to meet so many different amazing people that night all because we bonded over the same love for music.
School Boy Q is one of my favorite rappers, and this is a picture of him at Numbers Fest two summers ago. Being there and experiencing this was a life changing experience! A few of his most famous songs are "Hell of a night" and "Man of the year" which he played during this concert.
