The Parallels Between Literature And Hip Hop

Posted at 7:12AM Tuesday 18 Feb 2014

Dare point to parallels between literature and hip hop and prepare to embark on a war of words with detractors of rap. The genre's vulgar, misogynistic and they want little to do with it. The irony however is that often those criticisms are the similarities shared between the two - Shakespeare spoke of his love for bosoms, Kanye does so about booties, different anatomies, but same intentions. Today, young Londoners are merging the two worlds but the transition isn't one that is welcomed by all.
