If you don't know what, then you new school
When people think of hip-hop they tend to think of rap music and its related activities. For most people hip-hop is a popular music genre, and this is how most people approach hip-hop. Regardless as to how the original founders of Hip Hop depict and interpret THEIR culture, most professors and activists alike approach hip-hop in the way that mainstream corporations approach it—as a product to be bought and sold. So it concludes that if you don’t understand hip hop back then and their lyricism then you aren’t apart of their era.
