In this edition of Word is Bond Rap Radio, we are going to dig back in to the archives to explore the history of hip-hop and how white rappers emerged in a genre that was born and bred in black communities.
We explore the roots of hip-hop in this half hour documentary to see how it didn’t start as a recorded music form. It wasn’t part of the music business and was limited to small communities and live events. That all changed and it became big business, but it didn’t do it like other genres of music. It wasn’t white-washed at all. In fact, white artists had a hard time breaking into the form and culture.
Press play and let’s explore “Hip-Hop in Black and White” together
This is an encore presentation of Word is Bond Rap Radio.
