This week we’re continuing on Mia’s quest to learn more about hip hop culture. We’ve been watching documentaries and listening to music in an effort to introduce her to the essence of what hip hop culture in general, and rap music specifically, is about and what it can do to enhance lives when it’s in it’s purist form. This journey has been admittedly hard because there are too many people with no talent masquerading as rappers and confusing her a bit, but we’ll continue taking baby steps with this episode and her second mini lesson. This conversation was inspired by an AMC docuseries we watched called “Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America”. So, the backdrop of this short talk is based on this series which focused in on 5 hip hop songs and Mia getting more in depth on some of the period of hip hop music she missed.
