mass incarceration

The Government Vs Hip Hop

I found this video from Karceno4life that talks about how hip hop went from being a positive black cultural phenomenon to a tool that aids in mass incarceration of black people in the US. Personally I think with the rise of the internet and direct marketing, artists are now in the best position to reclaim hip hop for it's original purpose. This video describes some important history that shows us where we are currently and where we need to go.
