9780761386407: Kanye West: Soul-Fired Hip-Hop (USA Today Lifeline Biographies)

Rapper, singer, and record producer Kanye West hails from Chicago, Illinois. He is the son of former Black Panther Ray West, who went on to be one of the first African American photo journalists for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Kanye West first rose to fame as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records, where he eventually achieved recognition for his work on albums such as Jay Z’s The Blueprint, as well as hit singles for many other artists. His style encompasses many musical genres including '70s R&B, baroque pop, trip hop, arena rock, folk, alternative, electronica, synth-pop, and classical music.

From Booklist:

The USA Today Lifeline Biographies series gets it right by featuring big names kids are really interested in and providing attractive, readable—and informative—biographies. The USA Today aspect comes from both newspaper articles that complement the text and some of the paper’s “Snapshots“—graphs, etc. The subject of Kayne West may be a rapper, but his roots are decidedly middle-class (which almost led to him being dismissed by Jay-Z and others). While the book discusses (if downplays) the violence and misogyny of rap music, when it comes to West and his late mother, it shows the respect and love. This is an info-packed bio that looks back, but also looks forward to West’s future plans. Even reluctant readers will be attracted to the series’ photo-filled, stylish packages; and for those who want to read more, the back matter is particularly good. Grades 7-10. --Ilene Cooper

Book Description Lerner Publishing Group, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On his record My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, hip-hop superstar Kanye West unleashes an array of flavors--old school hip-hop, progressive rock, RB, classical music--and mixes and matches them, says USA TODAY, the Nation s No. 1 Newspaper. The paper describes Kanye s songs as sonic jewels. Since releasing his first album, The College Dropout, in 2004, Kanye has taken the hip-hop world by storm. He raps, he sings, and he dances, dazzling audiences with his unique musical style. People cheer when he takes the stage, but his socially conscious lyrics also make listeners think about what the words mean. Kanye has caused controversy by speaking his mind on television and at award shows. But there s no controversy when it comes to his talent. In the music industry, he is known as a quadruple threat because he works in four different roles: producer, rapper, beat-maker, and record label executive. Tall, handsome, and always stylishly dressed, he is also a musical innovator, fashion icon, and all-around hip hop rock star. Learn how this award-winning entertainer created his own musical empire.
