Here's a review
of the Lil Wayne
(Wayne's not nearly as talentless as I once thought, though he's no GOAT candidate either. But to say that he did more than the Neptunes and the Clipse to popularize A Bathing Ape
? That's just delusional. Then again, after he did that Vibe
cover, they printed not one but two letters to the editor talking about his 'Rape' belt buckle.)
OW: That track you used on there, “Can We Rap?”, I finally found that on 45. You killed that shit.
CC: Oh really? You found the original?
CC: No way, no you didn’t.
OW: Yeah, in Brooklyn.
CC: No you didn’t. What color is the label?
OW: Green. It might be a repress.
CC: Really? That’s a fucking bitchin’ song, man.
OW: Word, I found it on 5th ave in Flatbush.
CC: What’s that, a record store?
OW: Nah, it’s just this one guy who always has records out on the sidewalk.
CC: Man, you gotta show me. I’d love to authenticate it because that’s rare as fuck man. I don’t even have it. Dope.

Topic: Enslaved Women in Households
Thesis: Living the life of an enslaved woman, reflects the lifestyle of changed households and changed lives.
marks 'living the life' and 'lifestyle': These mean the same thing. What do you mean exactly?
marks 'changed households' and 'changed lives': Define these.
(name redacted) - I think you need to be more specific. You can do this by defining the terms I've underlined above; also focusing on a specific time period. Come see me + perhaps I can help you work through all this.
