Romeo loves Kendrick Lamar. He has been listening to Kendrick’s music since he first became famous. Romeo likes that his music is influenced by jazz, and is happy to see it be critically acclaimed. Romeo will always be a fan of Kendrick Lamar.

Marni, on the other hand, doesn’t know any of his music. She thought Kendrick Lamar was a jazz artist, not a rapper. She obviously doesn’t watch very much TV! But she is willing to listen to some of his music if Romeo will show her.

That is great lesson i hear and education being the best asset a parent can give a student all parents should embrace it and be there to support the campaign of education for all and custom assignment writing service help. Those parents who understands it are struggling very hard to give the very little education they can afford to their children with the hopes that it shall be of benefit to them in the later years.

It’s hard to tell which genre is my favourite and I aslo confess that I’m oblivious of what they call the genres, but I think I like pop music. I also like strong beat music (Is that Rock?) And some quiet music also.
