Unit 6 db: rap – east versus west coast (mus121 rhythm, blues & hip

There were stylistic differences between East Coast rappers/hip-hop artists and the West Coast rappers/gangsta rappers. Identify an artist from each of the coasts and share one of the songs (use the mashup tool) by each of these artists. What is similar and what is different about these musical styles and performances? What musical influences (blues? R&B? rock?) do you hear in each style of rap?

In response to at least two of your peers, when responding to your peers this week, choose another song by one of the artists (use the mashup tool) your peers has chosen and explain how this is similar or different to what your peer has shared with the class.
