Themes: Hi-Lo, urban nonfiction, music, entrepreneur, Hip-Hop, celebrities, biographies. Kanye West is known as an overconfident musician and fashion designer. He is considered a genius by many in the music business. He produced megahits for Jay-Z, Ludacris, and Common. Kanye calls himself the voice of a generation. He said, "Someone could be a better rapper, dance better. But culturally impacting? When you look back ... who's the icon at the end of the day?" 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 informational text. 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.
