  1. I think you chose it because it represents that money can’t buy happiness,true emotions,friends and the love from your family because money is just paper,paper with a meaning to turn people into rich and ignorant people or a kind person generous enough to give it away you can have lots of money and live miserably or you can have no money and live happily, so spend your money wisely or don’t spend it at all.
    I think it does have a positive message because she is saying that money isn’t the key to happiness or your happy future because money is NOT everything!!!!! just understand and listen to the song.
    I learnt that in an earlier time music was the key to friendship and family and not MONEY!!!!!! and music was the connection people had between them. I learnt the word MC means DJ and rapper who is someone who writes songs but as rhymes and sings it in a different way from real songs like singing it really fast or using lots of hand action.
    I think raps that are talking about a serious situation should not be band but I think ones that encourage and influence people to do bad things should be band.

  2. 1) I think that you chose this because it is a raps

    2) I think it’s he meen he want to be rich but he doesn’t want people with guns.

  3. I think you choose that song because it gives us a very important message that you don’t need money to get happiness that’s why

    The music I learnt is melody how long and shorter it is

  4. 1)I think you chose it because people that don’t have enough money can listen to it and not be miserable for the rest of there lives.
    2)I think it does have a positive message to it because because it said for get about the and be free.
    3)I learnt that shanking means that you have killed someone.
    4)I think It should be banned because little kids that go on YouTube can learn bad violence.

  5. I think you chose this song beaches it is simple and we can understand the basics
    And it is negative and positive.

    Pitch.how high or low a sound is.
    Tempo.how fast and slow a sound is.
    Melody.the tune of a song or sound.

    I think it shouldn’t be band because it’s taking away freedom of speach.

  6. 1) I think you chose this so we can learn about friendship by making a rap and also in the song it has a positive message which is that money is not everything.

    2) I learnt what melody means it means that the tune of the song.

    3) my opionon was tha is should be banned because if a child accidentally press the link on YouTube he will be influenced to do he same as the video.

  7. 1) I think you chose it because it say it not all about money also has a good meaning of friendship.

    2) Sylbos :It how many beat are in each word.E.g friend 2

    3)I think it should be banned I think this because if little children touch on the screen and listen the rap it might say fight is good and the little children might listen to that and start fighting .

  8. I think you chose it because it teaches us that money does not buy happiness.

    The words I learned were:
    Pitch-how high or low a sound is.
    Dinamics-how loud or quiet a sound is.
    Tempo-how fast or slow a sond is.
    Melody-a pattern of notes that creat a song.

    My opinion is that is should be banned for ever because all of mean violent things.

  9. 1)I think you chose this song so we can understand what rapping is on when we will make our own rap.I think it has a positive message because in the rap it says killing people is wrong and not killing people is Wright.

    2)The new word that I learnt is called dinamics and that means how loud or quiet the music is.

    3)I think they should be banned because if a little child is watching videos they might accidentally press that rap video and if it has violence in it it might tell them that is what there future should be.

  10. I think you chose it because we can make our own rap and it’s about friendship which is a nice thing. I think the message is positive because it’s saying it’s not about money in life. It’s about friends and having fun.
    I learnt that dynamics mean how loud and quiet the music is.
    I think it shouldn’t be banned because some of the rappers might say that in their songs and it could of happened to them in they past so they sharing it now. Also they might say it sometimes to tell them how they feel.

  11. 1. I think you chose this song because of its message which was money is not everything. I also think you chose the song because of the rap which we are going to remake and add our own things to it.
    2.we learnt the word dynamics which means how loud and soft the sound was.
    3. I don’t think raps that include violence should be banned because there are a lot of violent things in the world that might encourage people to be violent as well. Like violent video games but still they haven’t been banned.

  12. I think you choose this song because it tells you that it’s not all ways about the money and there’s no bad words we learnt what pitch,tempo,dynamics mean.No because rap songs can entertain people.

  13. I think she chose the song because it has a good message. It has positive message because it’s saying you don’t need money because your already fortunate.

    I learnt what melody means.It means a pattern of notes that can repeat to make a tune.

    I think rapping songs should be banned because people could copy the bad actions.

  14. I think you choose this song because it is heard
    very often and most people like it.
    It might be a positive message because
    it’s all about the money and it kinds of shows
    happiness.
    Pitch means when something is high or low.
    Dynamics means when somethings LOUD or when somethings quite.

  15. 1.i think the rap is positive.

    2.my new word is dynamic means hard and soft.

    3.i think violent raps shount be banned as is shows Experience and feeling.

  16. I think Ms Sahin chose this song to show there is more in life to care about then just money.

    There are 3 new words I learnt :
    Pitch- high or low
    Tempo -Fast or slow
    Dynamics-loud or quiet
    Melody-A pattern of notes which create a tune.

    My opinion is to not banned swearing in raps because first of all most raps express their feelings. Second of all they could be talking about what they have experienced throughout their life or from their background

  17. I think you chose this song because it has a positive message and it’s easy to learn

    The words mean you should care about money

    I think it should not be band because if somebody has been threw a rough time growing up you should let them express there feelings

  18. I think you chose this song to teach us that there is more to life than just money and to think how we can unite
    I think that they should be baned because if a small child finds the video on YouTube or listens to it on the radio it could influence them in the future

  19. I think you chose this song to show us not to just care about money in life as there is more to life then just money.The message is not to just care about money therefore it is a positive message.
    The new word I learnt was dynamics and it means hard or soft the music is.
    I think violent raps should not be banned as it shows experiences and feeling

  20. I think you chose chose this song because it has a good vibe amongst us.This song is positive in my opinion. I think the message is that not everything is about money and jewellery and videos and you should look around you and see what is happening and join in with different stuff and just dance.

    I learnt the vocabulary is syllable which means how many beats are in each word I also learnf what melody means which is a pattern of notes that can repeat and make a tune.I learnt that dynamics meant how loud or quiet/soft something is.

    I dont think rap should be banned because in this country everyone has their own right to speak and also the people who view the rap but then start copyinf and bad actions should know the consequences about it as they should be old enough to watch the rap and video.

  21. I think you chose this song because it is positive. The message is that people are just thinking about money and no one cares about the world.

    I learnt what dynamics meant is means how hard or soft the music is.

    I think violence should not be banned because it shows feelings and what they feel.

  22. I think you chose this song as it represents that money is not everything in life .I think it has a positive message as now lots of people are focusing on money and are not looking at real life as seriously.

    Words I’ve learnt:
    Dynamics-It is used to describe how loud or smooth a note is.

    I think violence rap videos with violence should be banned but depending on its reason.E.g if a rapper promoted violence it should be bannned and the artist should be stopped.On the other hand if rappers rapped about the negative affects of violence it could be a positive thing for young people.

  23. 1)The song has a good message and it tells us that life is not all about wealth.

    2)The new music vocabluary i have learnt are:
    sylable -how many beats there are in each word.

    3)I belive that mentoning violence is bad because it intimidates people to do bad stuff.

  24. I think that you chose this song because you liked and also because it has different types of ways to singing. For example it has a rap that is included. I think it has a positive message. This message is you should just relax.

    The musical vocabulary I learnt was dynamics. Dynamics are how loud and soft the music is.

    My opinion about violence in rapping was that it shouldn’t be banned because some of the rappers may just be expressing their feelings through this type of rapping and in this country everyone has the freedom to say what they want so they should be allowed. We also discussed that the viewers may get influenced by the rap. However, I think that the viewers should be mature and know what the right thing is to do.

  25. I think you chose this song because it has a good/rhythm, also a good meaning about friendship. It dose have a positive message because its saying you don’t need money or jewellery.

    I learnt that a melody is a sequence of a single notes that is musically satisfying. e.g a tune .
    I thought a mixture of both because violence is bad, but on a other had they could me talking about not using violence because they could have did it in the past and they wont to Cary on .

  26. 1.i think you chose this becasue it a was sencible rap for us to rap.
    2.It is not a psetive massege because he says somthing about gun that maby his parents get hit.
    3.I think vielonce in a rap should be banned because if somene was watching it ,it mite make the person watching wanna say it if its he or she.
