  24. Reflection- This means that j. Cole wants to spread a message of hope and desire to everyone. He wants people to do what they feel is right and do what they want, not what other people want them to do. He wants you to make your own decisions and do what your heart says, not necessarily what the rules say.
  25. Artist statement- Art is created by soul and compassion from the heart. It is used as a way to escape or spread a certain mood upon somebody. Art is a form of happiness and serves as a get-away. Art can be expressed through music or paintings or movies. The creator hopes to drive a certain feeling into the viewer, to really emphasize the emotion the creator put into the art.

  35. “I think that’s a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people, this is the level that things could be at. So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.”
  36. Kanye west feels like he is the one that is tasked with taking the impossible and making it possible.
  37. “My greatest power…I’m not a billionaire. I may not be the richest person on the planet. I might not be the most attractive guy. I might be the most liked, but, I right now, because of ‘New Slaves’, and because of the position I’ve always taken, have the most powerful voice by a mile. By a mile. And I’m gonna use that…I’ve got a trillion dollars worth of voice!”
  38. He wants to make a difference in the world by using his widespread influence on others for the good and development of society
  39. Artist statement- The music and movie industry are synonymous in the fact that they do their profession for their own personal gain, and not for the fame. Sure the fame and money is a good plus, but it isn’t the main reason.

  1. I agree that show no to give up and that pursue your dreams no matter what challenges you face while trying to accomplish this dream

  2. I think that this is good because this person explains what they think about the people the choose they explain it in details thats makes sense and followed directions

  3. Great people to pick from including the goat Brady. Overall it was really good, but i would add a more detailed reply to the quotes.

  4. I liked all your choices of artist because they all come from different backgrounds and are in different industries but they all have their own way of expressing themselves and expressing art.
