Title Architecture of hip hop
Date 2007
Description Being able to be true to yourself and speak what is on your mind was and is the very foundation on which hip hop is structured. It has become a platform by which one's character and identity is allowed to be made visible; not only to others but to the individual themselves. In recent years main stream media has portrayed rap and hip hop music as thuggish, misogynistic, and violent.... The airwaves are filled with songs which portray misogynistic images of women. This is what we are exposed to on a daily basis as to what hip hop is. Where has the message gone? There is currently a movement to get back to the roots of hip hop. Activists in the industry such as Jay-Z, Russell Simmons, Kanye West, and others are at the forefront of this t. In response to thsi current state of hip hop and the ever present socioeconomic conditions of many of our inner cities I am proposing a Youth Center for Hip Hop Production and Performance.
