What difference does it make ?

In the previous class, we compared the meaning of music today versus past musical genres that helped influenced today’s music, for instance, jazz, blues, secular and more. The song we analyzed was Gucci Gang. In my opinion, music is vital in the African Diaspora by expression of feelings, emotions and everyday challenges. This can be seen in secular music songs by slaves and today’s song of trying to deliver from rough times of the project by gaining of materialistic things. I personally feel that the message still evict the same meaning of overcoming struggles. ¬†However, the means of overcoming struggle have change. For example, slaves cried for freedoms and the artist of Gucci gang cries for materials. I feel the difference is similar to the saying “it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.”
