This "Lessons with Lyrics" is a close study of the awesome and inspirational "I can" by Nas. It contains song lyrics, discussion questions, a second assignment which would require the internet, an answer key, and links to the songs in one PDF file.
This is different from my other lyrics lessons in that this is split into two separate lessons within that same PDF file. The first lesson is a close study of the lyrics with attention to author's purpose, organization, and quoting from a source. The second is a research assignment that has students research some of the references mentioned in the song. Almost every answer in the answer key to this has a link to a short youtube video about the topic.
