Researching Hip-Hop

Our newest resource for journal articles is called Project Muse, and includes the complete text of articles published in journals covering the full spectrum of the Arts & Humanities.

One such journal is CALLALOO, “the premier African Diaspora literary journal.” Volume 29 Issue 3 is devoted to Hip-Hop Music and Culture. If you are researching this topic, check it out!

“The current discussion engages hip-hop at the line of transition, in a moment of crisis in public culture and cultural studies. The turn of the millennium witnesses hip-hop being mediated by big industry …It is impossible to have a comprehensive discussion about race or Americanness, about class or gender or sexuality, without incorporating a principled discussion of the state and ramifications of hip-hop culture today” Heath, R. Scott.. "Hip-Hop Now: An Introduction." Callaloo 29.3 (2006):715
