Hi! Our names are Isa and Dany. We rapped sonnet 12 by Shakespeare. This poem is about a person seeing how things die and change through time. No one can escape time, everything will become older even the most beautiful things, we are in a clock and we can't change time.  Shakespeare portraits many pictures of how eventually everything will decay and die nothing can always remain beautiful.

Our names are Marcelo and Dario aka Big Chungus and Lil' Happy Meal. We rapped sonnet 7 by William Shakespeare.  In this sonnet, Shakespeare draws a simile between the rising and setting sun and youth and age.  He says that as the sun rises more people admire it but as it sets it is ignored and the rising stars of the night take the attention of becoming the new youth. He is saying that youth are the golden days of sunrise but as you get older you are closer to a sunset and your life and...

Hi, we are Diego and Teun. We rapped about sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare, this sonnet tells how he talks about his young years of leave, no-doubt and the eternal summer of youth. It also tells that the summer is too short so you do not need to lack but enjoy.  We made the beat by ourselves and we used a little bit of autotune to sound better because we can’t really rap.

Our names are Regina and Eva, we chose to rap to sonnet 13 by Shakespeare. The sonnet talks about love for the beauty of youth. It talks about the self identity of this youth beauty and that it is so beautiful, that it should be passed on when she dies and borrowed by someone else. It talks about heritage and how it should be passed on for others to be able to experience what you have experienced with it. It also warns the youth, that he/she will lose beauty if he doesn't revitalize himself.

Hi! Our names are Isa and Charu. We rapped to Sonnet 8 by William Shakespeare. In this sonnet in particular, music is being compared to love. The person or the protagonist (the one writing the poem), is writing to someone who seems to not enjoy music, despite the fact that his/her partner (the protagonist) loves him or her (probably her because Shakespeare is the one writing the poem) greatly. He moves on to talk about the actual music, which is teaching the loved one a lesson about love;...

We are Alexander, Diego, and Aidan, and together we are GEN Z and we will (try to) rap sonnet 25 written by William Shakespeare.  This sonnet is about how, even if you have many victories and achievements, it can all fall and be forgotten if you make a mistake.  At a single mistake, every one might turn against you, all your victories and achievements will be forgotten, and people will only see your mistakes. Though the poet is not numbered among those famous, fortunate people, their fame...

Our names are Adrian and Guillermo, also known as Lil GIGI, and Flow. We rapped Sonnet 18, by Shakespeare. The Sonnet that we rapped is about a woman, because at the start of the poem, Shakespeare states “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”. In addition to this, the poem says “Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;” In the words that we use today, this would mean that you won't  lose the beauty that you possess. Finally, the poem also states “So long lives this and this...

Our names are Sofia and Carolina, also known as ‘lil tracks. This poem we rapped is Sonnet 62 by William Shakespeare. It is about excessive jealousy and selfishness.  This poem is his response towards all the criticism he was given in his days due to these traits.  He also admits it to be true, and expresses the guilt he felt, and he also admits that he was self absorbed.  It is a response to the three jealousy Sonnets lined before this one, Sonnets 58, 59, and 61.

Our names are Ana Lu and Balbina, aka AB. We rapped Sonnet number 23 written by William Shakespeare. This sonnet is about an actor that forget his lines while performing. And instead of that actor to improvise, he gets impatient and he can't control his fury.  But when he sees the person he cares about all that fury turns into love.  At the end this sonnet, he shows that no actor is perfect.
