PeriodLisa WeaverDr. Dre’s StyleHave you ever wanted to know how life is being famous? Dr. Dre’s lyrictells the life of being famous and its luxuries. Dre’s “Fame” has unique propertiesthat show his fine work of content, desire for fame, and stylistic form. The content Dre uses contributes to the poems interest. Dre usesviolence, drugs, and gangsta life as a core source for content. “Alcoholic rhymer”and “Me and my crew drinking, having a good time” is an example of Dre’s use of drugs as content; he mixes alcohol and fame together to give the idea that it’s cool.“Fame makes me loose, hard to swallow.” That shows that “Fame” is controlling hislife and is consuming who he is. He describes how “Fame” is who he is, he hasbecome. It uses explicit content as “B----, gimme my money.” To show that hewants his money for “Fame” in a strong way. Dr. Dre gives a better view of what hisfame life is like. Dre says “Let me hit you from behind” and “I love it when you grabmy gun” to give off ideas oh his view of being famous by mixing violence with it.“Fame is like I’m possessed wit game” means that he gets caught up in the famelife and gets into things normally you wouldn’t want to get into. Dre’s use of strongcontent to mix with the life of fame catches many readers’ attention.Throughout “Fame”, Dr. Dre describes his desire for “Fame”, howmuch he wants “Fame”, and how he will get “Fame” using phrases like, “You know I

It also shows that violence he hasconcurred with might someday destroy him, and take away all of the fame that tookhis whole life to earn, but it also shows how much his “Fame” means to him.“Fame” introduces a whole new perspective of the desire gangsta rap brings to themusic industry, and how relentless it can be to it. The styles used by Dre form a slang of rhymes. Dre uses slang to make wordsthat don’t usually rhyme, rhyme with other words. He uses improper English to takeout or add in sounds to words or sentences to fit in with the rest of lyric. An exampleis “Nine is fine, it plays for time, I’ma lemme hit you from be-hine” shows improperword use and misspelling to fit in a rhythmic pattern into the poem. The use of theslang also contributes to the theme of gangsta life in fame. He would also take outsome letter, put in letters, or do both to creates words like “lemme”, “gotta”, and“cos”. The use of slang introduces the grammar that the gangta rappers use on thestreet, and during their free time to give us a glimpse of what their life is like. Dr.Dre makes it look appealing by purposely added in slang and improper grammarinto the lyrics.Dr. Dre tries to bring out his view of fame life. By learning the use of slang and improper grammar, the reader can enjoy and understand the rhythmicpattern that’s being displayed. Dr. Dre’s content, style, and personal views makethe lyric more intense. He uses realistic content to make it feel more real, the stylemakes you feel like you’re a gangsta, and the personal views make it feel likeyou’re reading this person’s life and the events he saw. Dr. Dre utilizes these
