Andrew Hall Dr. Thomas Garcia Music 186 September 30, 2011 Rap/Hip Hop Internetography For this particular assignment I made a timeline for helping me right my narrative. Before starting to write my actual essay I went through and read the timeline and that helped me to remember pivotal parts of my story that I may have left out. In my opinion, my strength of this essay was my ability to recall a situation that happened in my life so that I could write this essay without much trouble. I also think that being able to find a quote that put my thoughts into a more clear understanding of what I was really trying to say was helpful to me and the audience. If I could change some things about this essay they would be that I get my point across more clearly and also make my paper a little longer without having to force things that are somewhat irrelevant into the essay. 1. http://www.lilwaynehq.com/ This is one, of many, fan websites for Lil Wayne. On this site you can find anything and everything you could ever want to know about the self and fan proclaimed “Best Rapper Alive.” There is a discography that contains all of “Weezy’s” albums, mixtapes, and collaborations with other well-known rap artists. On the homepage you can find articles and videos helping fans stay up to date with “Mr. Carter.” There is an audio section where new songs are posted for fans listening pleasure. This website is well put together and the best fan site I found for “Tune.” The audience for this site is obviously “Weezy F Baby” fans but it is a great place for any music fan to learn more about “Birdman Jr.” (September 29, 2011, 9:55 am) 2. http://www.last.fm/ This website is similar to Pandora. You need to sign up to be able to access the services on this site. They use “The Scrobbler” to determine what music you may want to listen to. Scrobbling takes into account what you and all the other site members listen to. There is a section on the home music page that gives you options to select music by genre and one option is hip hop. By doing this it can recommend music to you based on what other people who listen to same songs or genre are also listening to. It ranks artists and songs based on what is being listened to the most by the members. They keep track of artists touring dates so that you can see when they may be near you.
