“Hello everyone and welcome to my podcast for Nov. 10, 2006. I’m Brian Wilkins and in today’s podcast, we will discuss the cause (in more ways than one), the effect, and the impact hip-hop is having on young African Americans.
I will quote from my interview with Dr. Chouki El Hamel, a professor of history at Arizona State University, who specializes in African studies, to get his take on hip-hop and its effect on African American youth. We will go over the history of music in black America, how hip-hop started, and why hip-hop now needs to be used more responsibly by those who control it…meaning the rappers, the record companies, and the media conglomerates.”
