Remember when it was cool to be a conscious revolutionary in hip-hop? When it was cool to talk about police brutality and fighting the powers be. This was a part of our mainstream music and was instrumental in our community. From acts like KRS One, public enemy, Tupac, queen latifa amongst others. With music praising woman and not tearing them down, talks of building and uplifting our community, but with acts like kendrick lamar and j. Cole now dominating the rap game, are we seeing the revolutionary sound back on the rise? Join your hosts Jeremy, Jesse and Jerry as they shed light on what revolutionary Hip hop was/is today.
