Themes: Hi-Lo, urban nonfiction, music, entrepreneur, Hip-Hop, celebrities, biographies. Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. wrote his first rhyme at age eight. Lil Wayne still sets his own rules and does not let people tell him how to make his music. He's an artist with a trademark appearance, wearing his hair in dreadlocks. His teeth are covered in gold, platinum, and diamonds. His body is covered with tattoos. And he is rarely seen without a red bandana. 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.
