This is a group for all the New York natives living in other places. Finally a forum where we can talk about the things we miss most about NYC. Why people respond the way they do when we tell them we are from NY as well as the misconceptions people have about our city and its inhabitants.

CEP #271 ⿢ Hip-Hop 101 ⿢ (12 Weeks)
Are you tired of commercialized rap? Are you fed up with ⿿bling-bling?⿝ Do you appreciate tight flows, lyrical dexterity, off-the-head free-styling, battle rhyming, skillful writing and creative headnoddin⿿ beats? Do you love and live Hip-Hop? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, and if you⿿re down with The Last Emperor, Black Thought, Bahamadia, Ikon The Hologram / Jedi Mind Tricks, Chief Kamanche, 71 and Esoteric, Virtuoso, Army of the Pharaoh, supernatural, Common, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, KRS, Rakim, Saafir, Rha Goddess, Gil Scott Heron, Pharoahe Monch, Ras Kass, Ahmad, Dead Prez, Punch and Words, Jurassic 5, Indelible MCs, Natural Elements, The Last Poets and all of the others who perform the ⿿lyrical miracle,⿝ then Hip-Hop 101 is for you and every other Philadelphia Hip-Hop head. In this course, we will listen to, discuss, debate, and critique many ⿿underground⿝ artists and their rhymes. In addition, just as we previously had such talented personalities as Chuck D, Danny Castro (founder and producer of the classic Lyricist Lounge⿿Volumes I and II), Schoolly D, Mama Wit Da Drama (of WKDU 91.7 FM), and Lady B (of WPHI 103.9 FM) to serve as guest speakers during various class sessions, we will continue with those same types of impressive celebrity speakers this semester.
Fee: Free Public Forum Student Limit: 40
Instructor: Michael Coard (who happens to be a revolutionary criminal defense lawyer) is an African who has been a Hip-Hop head since even before Kool Herc arrived from Jamaica. Michael⿿s Hip-Hop expertise ⿿ just like that of every culturally conscious Black man and woman in this country ⿿ is based on melanous, rhythmic soul that is inherent in every African, especially those who are forced everyday to struggle against the permanent residue of American slavery and the pervasive presence of American racism. ascepspring08.pdf
