The power of the people is much stronger than the people in power. Hip Hop is a social invention for increasing the participation of youngsters who are often left out of community development processes.
Hip-hop artists YG and Nipsey Hussle (see, young people know some old references too) have teamed up and released a new track and it’s pretty great. Titled “Fuck Donald Trump,” it may seem like a gimmick, but the song is a serious protest song an
The eighties are the decade in which Hip Hop grew from a local phenomenon into a major worldwide musical and cultural force. Pioneered in New York City in the early 1970s, it was not until 1979 that the first Hip Hop song (even though still heavily influenced by disco sounds) was recorded and released – …
Today, a single email can launch a worldwide movement. But as sociologist Zeynep Tufekci suggests, even though online activism is easy to grow, it often doesn't last. Why? She compares modern movements -- Gezi, Ukraine, Hong Kong -- to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and uncovers a surprising benefit of organizing protest movements the way it happened before Twitter.

Producer and curator of Harvard’s “These Are the Breaks” project, 9th Wonder, selected To Pimp A Butterfly to be among the first albums in what is expected to be a two hundred piece collection. Selected albums are considered to be "the standard of culture," and will therefore be added to Harvard University's library.
Beside TPAB will be three other legendary Hip Hop albums, all of which are personal favorites: Nas' Illmatic, Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory. All of these masterpieces will be archived with liner notes and the vinyl used in the original production.
It's not that these albums needed Harvard-recognition; Ivy League validation of Hip Hop culture sounds outrageous, anyway. These albums set a cultural standard with or without the nod from a predominantly white and historically racist institution. But damn, the nod still feels good. Hip Hop transcends all barriers, including prestige. And it will always.
Congratulations to the featured artists, and I'm looking forward to seeing which other albums are added to the library.
