Virginia Euwer Wolff
Rap has so many possibilities that need to be explored. There are different factions of rap, but some are in a rut.

Semiotics is really interested in the questions like, what keeps you watching something, what keeps you - you know, what keeps you listening to a story on the radio?

I'm a millionaire, and I'm not thinking about grabbing an old woman's purse.
