Hip-hop in academia:

April 6, 2007 at 03:56 | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I never realized that academia cared about hip hop to the extent that it does. It seems like hip-hop is a necessary substance. I wonder how many of the people that write books about hip-hop: rap, make beats, DJ, break, write graffiti, dig for records, et cetera. And, of the ones that do I wonder how many of them are good at what they do.

  1. A pretty interesting article about hip hop was published in this months issue of National Geographic. Since it is such a driving force in music and culture, its recognition in a more academic context is innevitable (and, perhaps, overdue).
    Ps. I know a teacher who can rap.
