Hip Hop, in the words of KRS-One, is “something that is being lived.” – KRS One, introduction to Ruminations (New York: Welcome Rain,  2003)

Hip Hop cannot be easily understood or defined. It is complex and full of narratives that would blow away many of the strongest anthropologists. Hip Hop is larger than the radio, larger than commercialized artists, larger than record industry branding. It is a culture, a people, a movement, a growing community of people that live, breath, eat, love, hate and work just as anyone else does.
