Presentation Title:

  • Hip Hop & Technology

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Since its emergence in the mid 1970s, Hip Hop culture and music have been transformed by technological innovations. Through the research of Tahir Hemphill, creator of the Hip-Hop Word Count: A Searchable Rap Almanac, an ethnographic database built from the lyrics of over 40,000 Hip Hop songs, users can analyze and track this evolving language. Kwende Kefentse’s focus on urbanization has led him to explore parallels between the emergence of Hip Hop culture and the built environment on a global scale.
