The Sociology of Hip Hop

I realise this won’t be to everyone’s tastes but, given how fascinating I found it, I couldn’t resist posting it up. Three of the most talented young artists outside the mainstream gathered last year at the British Library to discuss the ills and myths of contemporary Hip Hop. Even if this isn’t a style of music you like, it’s worth listening to the discussion simply for the plethora of sociological insights it offers into youth culture, gang violence and the intersections of capitalism and music.
