Gowhere Hip Hop at American Theater Company music panel discussion

Tibs and I were honored to be a part of a panel discussion at the American Theater Company, where the concept was to explore the limitless depth of hip hop and the music business both nationally and right here in Chicago. We engaged with our fellow panelists (all of whom either work behind the scenes or perform in the local scene) and an audience filled with students and hip hop enthusiasts to furthermore discuss the culture of hip hop. The video above is  pure highlights of our near hour-long talk, believe it or not.  Our discussion heavily surrounds the movement of power in the industry, and how that breeds and shapes the talent that comes out of it. We talk strategy on how to regain power through positivity, and the reason big corporations have such power to begin with. The ladies kick it off with talks on the recent and ongoing violence in our city and how that filters into hip hop culture.  Also, if you fast forward to the 3:30 mark, Tibs and I have a nice stretch about the internet's effect on hip hop (naturally) as well as our advice for upcoming artists. This discussion is hopefully thought-provoking and educational, as it was for us just listening to our fellow panelists. We hope you can take the time out to hear what we all have to say and move forward to not only greater appreciate our hip hop culture, but to transform it as we desire. Enjoy!
