This course explores the rise of Hip Hop as a global phenomenon and the social controversies that it has engendered. Drawing on documentaries, films, and music, we address issues of violence, misogyny, use of the "b-work" and "n-word," and glorification of "ghetto culture" in exploring Hip Hop's evolution.
