Would you like to dialogue about the impact of race, class and gender on hip hop texts? Deeper than Rap: Explorations in Hip Hop Analysis, Discourse, and Criticism is a multidisciplinary course which investigates the social, cultural, racial, political, aesthetic and historical dimensions of hip-hop, as well as its impact on American (Popular) Culture. This course explores contemporary texts and debates within hip-hop studies and examines the African, American and African American influences that pre-date hip hop.
