This is a blog dedicated to the “African Hip Hop Project”. The project will include information on resources and artists that focus on hip hop. The blog is currently being maintained and updated by students in the Hip Hop and Popular Culture in Africa course in the African Studies Department at Howard University.
We also host a monthly podcast on social issues and hip hop. That podcast features interviews and music from around Africa.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to:
1. Submit your material (music, book) for consideration for review on the blog.
2. Submit a press release for a new book on the blog.
3. Submit your music to be featured on the podcast. You must send an MP3 of the song/s, briefly describe the message in the music, & indicate that you are giving us permission to play the song in the podcast.
