    Hip Hop 50th Anniversary Tribute Contest Winner: How Music Makes Me Feel

    Erin Kirkwood, ’27
    Opening My Soul, Jakeira Stewart, ’26

    How music makes me feel

    Thump thump

    Thump thump bomb bang

    The car vibrates as the music brings it to life.

    Making the air feel alive

    The voices of the rap and the off-pitches are mixing together.

    Creating a new song altogether

    Listening to Tupac and Biggie

    We were never picky.

    As long as the beat was shaking the car,

    Our voices were never far away. 

    How many memories do I have of these songs?

    The long road trips

    Or parties in the house

    The lyrics move your body.

    In such an enchanting way

    Even if you don’t dance, it makes you sway.

    Rap and poetry

    Filled with so much emotion.

    You always been there for me 

    So I just want to say thank you.

    For all you got me through
