Abstract:

The significance of Hip-Hop culture to the progression of the American society is as vital as the liberation ideology of the Black Power Movement. The inception and progression of Hip-Hop culture has meant the perpetuation of financial growth and prosperity to American society which has influenced the globe. These influences have been vital in shaping the scope of race and race consciousness in the socialization of the world and how individuals are perceived in the dominant sphere. Although, in the growth process of Hip-Hop there have been paradigm shifts that have helped to aid the perpetuation of negative stereotypes. These shifts in the culture of Hip-Hop deserve an analysis and critique to honor the marginalized people of American society that invented an art form as a medium of expression. This work provides not only a socio- historical perspective and legacy of the inception of Hip-Hop and the emcee, but it will be aided by the methodological framework of Critical Race Theory (CRT) to analyze the effectiveness of the urban griot and his/her legacy.

The tenets of Critical Race Theory have created a methodology that has been able to address the legal aspects of racism and in American society. The political, social, economic and educational aspects of American livelihood have maintained the ideology of a dominant ethnocentric framework that has maintained a consistent Eurocentric paradigm for the benefit of the dominant class. CRT has given the academician and society a scope of deconstruction that has been beneficial for comprehension of racism. Critical Race Theory has been able to show why racism has impacted the social fabric of American ideology which has transitioned to impact the globe. In conjunction with the art of the emcee, the facet of Hip-Hop that deserves further exploration is the legacy and use of the emcee as griot to provide the aspect of a social, economic and political counter narrative of peripherized peoples in urbanized spaces on a global scale. The act of actually hearing the voice of the subject in qualitative work aids in the deconstruction process of alienating those who the research is about.

In conjunction with the phenomenon of Hip-Hop, this work speaks to CRTs methodological use and potential as a pedagogical tool that addresses the multifaceted aspects of the ‘counter narrative’ in the legacy of griots and poets such as: Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets, The Watts Prophets, Amiri Baraka, and Haki Madhubuti.
