jasonpreu.com Presents: Rap Music History Bibliography #7

Thanks to TKC, I’ve been tuned in to the well-written, well-informed and discussion-generating blog, Democracy and Hip-Hop Project.

I haven’t had much time to mine this site for all its worth but I can point you to one recent post that stood out to me for its comprehensiveness and thoughtfulness: The Universality of Hip-Hop. While I don’t agree point for point with the author’s observations, particularly concerning jazz and its relation to the theme at hand (before hip-hop fitness gurus there was Jazzercise), the assertion that “[H]ip-hop is the music to end all musics” I have to agree with. There are no sounds that are off-limits to rap music and that very attribute is a potent, powerful and unique equalizer about which I have yet to hear much discourse.

I’m excited to read more.
