The perfect mixture of modern style and entertainment with intellectual substance and educational rigour.
Hip Hop is better than most other musical genres for education because of its emphasis on quick speech. This means you can get across a lot more information in the same 2 -3 minute slot than you could in a traditional sung format.
And the genre is happily expanding all the time. Below is a small selection of videos I've come across that span History, Theology, Economics, Energy Science & English. Please do let me know about any other qualities productions so I can add them to this (hopefully) growing library of Hip Hop academia.
And thank you, Educational Hip Hop, for letting me combine two of my great loves: Hip Hop and Academia.
