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
Biographies highlight the unique characteristics of each
mega-rapper, including childhood struggles, personal style,
rivalries, giving back, and more. Each 48-page book includes a
timeline and glossary, with vocabulary words highlighted
throughout. Shawn Corey Carter was born in 1969 and raised in
Brooklyn's tough Marcy housing projects. The J and Z trains ran by
Marcy, so his friends called him Jay-Z. Hearing rap for the first
time ..". was like watching some kind of combat, but he was alone
in the center. All he had were his eyes, taking in everything, and
the words inside him. I was dazzled."
