We’re celebrating the 50th birthday of hip-hop by going to rap school this week on The Message!
My school Pendulum Ink Academy celebrated hip-hip’s 50th by holding ‘women’s month’ and inviting Bahamadia, Rah Digga and Shawna to teach class and school about how women have helped develop the culture. And I want to pay all that knowledge forward, well some of it at least, we only got one hour!
Here is what’s on the syllabus:
As always, I’ve got a set dedicated to new hip-hop music. We’ll get into how hip-hop is literally going to college! Then we’ll highlight how women and little people took over the genre as well as play some classic hip hop so we never forget where it all started!
