  50-cent Candy shop

disagree with the statement (you must be strong and tough, you must have a lot of women and money, you must always be in control, and you must always dominate women and other men) as hip hop and rap doesn't mean you have more rights than anyone else. The statement also suggests that all rappers have loads of money jewellery and women however numerous people do rapping for a hobby and not a career to show they aren't interested in the money and fame. The apparent denotations of the music are lots of money, expensive jewelry, lots of women. The connotation of this music video is that all rappers and artists should have loads of money and surrounded by women. 
     The atmosphere of the video is also very seductive towards 50-cent. This suggests that all the women want him and look up to him as a possibly powerful character. One comment also suggests that to be a real man you should be tuff have lots of women and lots of money. However i disagree with this statement as if you are male it never suggest you have to be rich and smothered in women also if you have lots of women the obvious impression is that you are very un trust worthy because you cant be in a one women relationship.
     The outfits in the video suggest that 50-cent is a thug and sometimes make his muscle and strength look better. Also he wears huge coats indoors making him look like a pimp and a chick magnet. Also the hand gestures suggest he is in command and all the other people are under his command and authority.

The summary of the video is that all the men in the world should be pimps or chick magnets rolling in tons of money.

  1. Solid amount of detail and examples, but at times you may have missed the point of the question (The statement isn't just about Rappers).
