Our discussions aim to deepen understanding of how media platforms have influenced the growth and global reach of Hip Hop. We'll explore topics such as the genre's portrayal in mainstream and social media, the power of social platforms in amplifying or censoring voices, and the challenges and opportunities encountered by the Hip Hop community in navigating the media landscape.
