You will create a project in place of your term paper. You expressed interest in developing a playlist of 5-8 songs about Hip Hop and Poverty. Alongside the playlist you will submit a short paper that is 4 pages double spaced MLA format that explains the theoretical making of the playlist (why hip hop and poverty, what themes come up, how does music–more specifically hip hop explore issues of poverty in Black communities ?What does it offer its listener in exploring issues of poverty sonically? Why is this relevant in Black Pop Culture Studies?) This essay can also include some lyrical analysis of the songs chosen (remember you don’t have to cover each one in detail, but more so the themes that are recurring and which songs best demonstrate this for you).
