#SessionTwoReligionAndHipHop – Conscious Rap and Women in Hip Hop


Do you feel women are being accurately represented in Hip Hop today?  Where did all the mainstream conscious rappers go?  I have included some of the videos from our discussions in the #Reli157x1 class I am taking and some videos of my choosing.  Take a second and browse through some of these and think about where Women and Conscious Rappers in Hip Hop have come from, who was around in the beginning, who’s around now, and the significance of women and conscious rappers in the Hip Hop communities today.  Enjoy the journey…
