Game On a Nation: Hip Hop Intellectual

 

I met Michael Eric Dyson many times when he taught at DePaul University in Chicago. He is one of the few intellectuals that does not shy away from the importance of Hip Hop and try to downgrade it. I applaud him for taking on the mass media's critic of Hip Hop. The Today's Show host tries to corner Michael Eric Dyson and Dyson just gives the host an intellectual right hook.

In this interview is an great example of critical thinking at its finest. If you like the discourse within the video, then you should pick up his book, the Soul of Hip Hop.

Note: I am not getting paid for mentioning his book, but it should be a good read. If you had not picked up a book in the last two weeks, then I strongly suggest that you pick up a copy used somewhere.
