I need 640 words translated from English to Spanish. Using tener, ser, estar as little as possible. The topic is hip-hop, should be written on a high school to college level. This project shouldn't take more than two hours as all the content is already written.
This is the draft:
All forms of music require creativity. Beyond the mental sharpness involved, some forms require fine tuned agility in the fingers, such as guitar playing, or rhythm throughout the entire body, such as drumming. Hip-hop requires the same mental sharpness with thorough agility of the mouth and ability to articulate ideas. Throughout the years, the mainstream music outlets have focused primarily on the negative aspects of hip-hop. Contrary to the publics general views of rap, the music found in the underground hip-hop community is very articulate, expressive, and positive.
One refreshing aspect of hip-hop is the art of freestyling. A freestyle is a verse or verses that are unrehearsed and said as they are thought of. Some people are so good at communicating ideas using rhyme scheme & the right amount of syllables that it is hard to believe they thought of it on the spot. Being clever with the words is very important in a freestyle. Hearing a good artist freestyle is truly very fun and entertaining, but well thought-out songs are usually where the best ideas are heard and expressed.
Hip-hop on the radio usually revolves around a few simple themes – partying, money, women, and material objects. Underground hip-hop, on the other hand, deals with deeper issues. Atmosphere has songs with themes such as single parents working hard to support their children, a recount of finding out about the death of a parent at a young age and the psychological effects felt in the ensuing years, and life's everyday struggles that can help to make it all seem more bearable during tough times. In the song “Murder of Memories” by (band name in English) Eyedea & Abilities, Eyedea discusses a Vietnam veteran plagued by memories of the violence he took part in at the young age of 18. He paints a hauntingly poetic picture of the shattered life of a man put “(In English) face to face with the devil for the 'welfare' of his country.” By listening to the song we develop a deeper understanding of the difficult trials other people go through. He opens people's eyes to hardships faced by a person laying on a park bench that most wouldn't think twice about. Through the clever art of his lyricism Eyedea helps to awaken compassion and empathy.
On the whole, a good portion of underground hip-hop aims to communicate intelligent thought.. A driving force of the creativity is the naturally competitive nature of MCs. Despite the competitive nature, artists in this world are by far more approachable and down to earth than those we typically hear on the radio. Slug and Ant of the now well known group Atmosphere, whose shows attract hundreds and hundreds of fans, are known to be outside the venue talking to fans after their shows. When the popular rapper Snoop Dogg came to The National recently, fans could get a picture with him for $100. In contrast, Slug and Ant interact freely with their fans and show a great deal of respect to everyone who approaches them. This type of attitude and behavior is the norm with these artists, who value the homegrown approach, and shun the larger than life personas put on by mainstream rappers.
Underground hip-hop requires as much talent as any other art form. It is a vast community of people with all different styles and approaches. Radio rap and the rap seen on MTV is hard to relate to because most people do not party all the time, have cars with unnecessarily expensive wheels, and have hordes of beautiful women following them everywhere. Groups like Atmosphere makes songs that the average person can relate to. The beats and content are refreshing. If more people were turned onto this world of poetic hip-hop, there would be a drastically different public opinion of what rap is all about.
