50 Cent - Candy Shop

I disagree with the following statements because hip hop doesn't present a very rigid and narrow version of manhood - one that suggests that to be a real man you must be strong and tough, you must have a lot of women and money, you must always be in control, and you must always dominate women and other men. A Way of showing this is untrue is that 50 cent might go home and take off all his big coats and jewelry to put on fluffy slippers and casual clothes. Also not all rappers/hip hop artists have load of money,cars,woman,jewelry and houses this is a stereotype of a rapper/hip hop artist. In rapping most people think that it all about money,woman and jewellery but most of it I about what has happened to them in their life's. 
The connotation of a rapper is that  the sort of clothes that he is wearing relates him to a rapper but the denotation of a rapper is that the men always wear big coats and jewelry and the woman wear short clothes and jewelry as well. 
The atmosphere of the 50 cent-candy shop video is slow and in the video all you see is cars,expensive houses,woman in short clothes and 50 cent in expensive clothes and big jackets. The clothes in the video are all mainly short on the woman and on 50 cent he wears expensive chains and rings and he also wears big coats and shoes. In the video he uses hand gestures to make him look tough/hard.In a part of the video he shows his muscles/masculinity.In a part of the video the women put on red track suit and do a dance routine to show that 50 Cent and the women own the whole house

  1. This seems unfinished? What is here is solid and you have a couple of examples. Focus on using examples to back up your points.
