Overcoming Hip Hop’s Emotional Immaturity Through Hip Hop
This keynote diagnoses the root causes of our generation’s emotional immaturity, (racism, slavery/post traumatic slave disorder, disintegration of family bonds and structure, etc), using lyrics and songs from the 70s to Hip Hop’s Golden Era. It then goes on to examine the accumulated effects of our trauma that plays out in the music from 1993 until recent. Finally, we arrive at the music and media that’s come out in the past 4 years, which shows growth and maturity, signaling a paradigm shift and our ultimate ability to transcend the problems that plague our community.
