Hip Hop and Philosophy: Rhyme 2 Reason


all the violence in hip hop? Does po-po wield legit authority in the hood? Where does the real Kimberly Jones end and the persona Lil' Kim begin? Is hip-hop culture a "black" thang? Is it unethical for N. W. A. to call themselves niggaz and for Dave chappelle to call everybody bitches? Is Dead Prez revolutionary and gangsta?
