hip-hop and literature
Sorry it's been awhile,between working with fidgety four year olds and reading " The Great Gatsby" a woman don't have time for much,not even a blog. Being a novice writer, I really need to adopt F. Scott Fitzgerald's writing style and read more of his work;I never knew poetic sentences could collide with an ingenious vocabulary.
While searching youtube, I discovered two of hip-hops buried treasures, Wale and Lupe Fiasco;two of the most underrated lyricist in the game. After listening to this and smiler lyricist, I think hip-hop's gangster image is slowly diminishing;however, the homophobia and misogyny still remains.
