What is Conscious Hip Hop? _______________________________________________ Conscious hip hop or socially conscious hip-hop is a sub-genre of hip hop that focuses on social issues. It is not necessarily overtly political, but it discusses social issues and conflicts. Themes of conscious hip hop include religion, aversion to violence, African American culture and advancement, the economy, or simple depictions of life in the projects/ghetto that reveal the struggle of ordinary people. Grandmaster Flash's "The Message" was an early and hugely influential political and conscious hip hop track, decrying the poverty, violence, and dead-end lives of the black youth of the time. The audience for conscious rap is largely underground.Most conscious hip hop artists have not attained the same level of commercial success as mainstream hip-hop, though there are some notable exceptions to this. _________________________________________________ EOTM is dedicated to bringing to light the presence of positive, constructive and conscious ideals and messages within the world of Rap and Hip Hop. Helping to raise public awareness and spread knowledge and a new vision for the hip hop community. EOTM is happy to announce a new series of shows on Conscious Hip Hop and recognizing these Artists. These new series of shows will detail interviews with prominent Hip Hop Artists and expounding on the conscious realm within the music versus the anger and aggression. Our hopes are that we will be able to bring a message of hope, peace and harmony to the masses through these shows. We can overcome the ever-growing trend towards negativity in Hip Hop and hold steadfast to positive beliefs and ideals while maintaining great success and influence…but we need your help. Will you join us to make conscious hip hop not just a underground movement but mainstream as well?
