Whether real Q’s or not. These Q’s hold us down to the very end. They eat, drink, bleed, and breathe Q.

They are just as much respected as anyone else if the #QFAM, if not more. Cheers to their loyalty.

About to cause mass hysteria

A play on CyHi The Prynce’s name and Princeton actually being an Ivy League university.

Ivy League schools are collegiate private conference universities, consisting of eight institutions. Check their sports page out here. Princeton the rapper is in a class of his own.

Still an argued theory, but chemtrails are cloud paths left by airplanes or jets. These planes let out hot air at high elevations where it’s typically cold. The trails are actually crystallized ice.

Concorde is a British airway service.

Basically, Niday’s bars are extraordinary and he leaves a mark on the game whenever he raps.

A nice little reference to the Mario Bros., Mario and Luigi.

Double Entendre:

  • Mario and Luigi both have their signature letter (of their first name) engraved on their hat.

  • In this case those letters stand for different words: M = millions, L’s = Losses.

The feeling that XV might have watched Tegen Toppa Gurren Lagan.

The song “Row Row Fight The Power” has a similar start. This may be an allusion to that song.

When it comes down to it, as far as I know, in the history of Q’s on RG. I’ve been here the longest. Three years and still Q'ing.

WOO!!

Hit me up anytime. Even though my names purple, I still rep for them yellowcoats.

Q is the second most, least used letter in the alphabet after Z. However the same weight in Scrabble: 10 Points.

However because of their importance, The letter has seemed more relevant and promising. I mean just go to your search bar and search “Q”. This may sound contradictory, but because of the letters exposure while being the least used shows why Z can’t battle with it.

BE AMAZED

Don’t steal my quotes and take credit for them lol.

Actually, he is a poet, he just doesn’t want to be called one. He rather be a called a something that elaborates on what poets already do.

Poetry is an art. Rap is poetry.

"They'll see how beautiful I am / And be ashamed-- / I, to..." (Mr. Z – 5th Period: Langston Hughes’s “I, Too, Sing America”) | pending

I always found this these last few lines to have deeper meanings.

  • Physically beautiful, are they ugly compared to him. Is his brown skin something to admire compared to their white skin?

  • A beautiful person? Inside he’s a lover and cares truly for them unlike they could ever care for him. Nice, kind, etc all of those attributes which highlight how good nature-d he is.

  • Should they be ashamed for how ugly they are for mistreating and oppressing African Americans?

Always ask yourself questions when you read poetry, it’s one of the best ways to interpret it. <3

"Tomorrow, / I'll be at the table / When company comes." (Mr. Z – 5th Period: Langston Hughes’s “I, Too, Sing America”) | pending

Think even more about the last two lines of the stanza before this:

And eat well
And grow strong

Also, what’s difference about the two stanzas? Is he standing up in the face of oppression, demanding things to be changed?

"I, too, sing America" (Mr. Z – 5th Period: Langston Hughes’s “I, Too, Sing America”) | pending

Not long before this, Walt Whitman wrote “I Hear America Singing”. Do you think this is Langston’s response and gateway to display himself as an American by joining in and singing with the rest of nation? Is he taking pride in being part of the American Culture.

A little challenge question: does everyone in America speak English, or need to for that matter?

"I am the darker brother. / They send me to eat in the kit..." (Mr. Z – 5th Period: Langston Hughes’s “I, Too, Sing America”) | pending

Good Stuff

Don’t you find it interesting, that he uses the word “brother” here? Does this mean, in some type of way, he considers his white counterparts to be family, even though they shun him for the color of his skin?

This poem has somewhat of an ugly duckling feel, don’t ya think?

Mr. Varnell is definitely right about adding imagery into your annotation. It gives the reader a visual as oppose to having to create one themselves. It also helps not only improve, but make the authors interpretation more believable; if the reader can see what the author thinks they are trying to explain to them (if that makes sense. Dang run-ons.)
