Tricia Rose invented hip hop studies with her 1994 book Black Noise. Since then, the Brown University professor has continued to be on the vanguard of scholarship on race, music, gender, inequality, and youth culture—topics she frequently discusses on NPR, CNN, Current TV, and MSNBC. Join Rose as she presents her thoughts on the current state of hip hop, which, she argues, is in some ways following the path forged by jazz, first an African American, then an American, and now a global art form.
