A Discussion on Hip-Hop in Africa

This episode is one of the student podcast projects done for the Hip Hop in Africa class. In the podcast, the students discuss the role hip-hip has in Africa today, how that role has changed over time, and the ways in which hip-hip will continue to shape Africa throughout the future.
Overall the three students had a fascinating conversation that touched on topics ranging from the 2014 protests in Burkina Faso, to local elections in South Africa, to Queer identity in Uganda.
