8. Work on Creative Media Reflection Journal 1:
Journal 1 is in response to Style Wars and Rubble Kings documentaries. These two documentary films explore different aspects of the origins of Hip-Hop music and culture. Rubble Kings documents the social, political, and economic origins of Hip-Hop’s rise in the Bronx, whereas Style Wars focuses more on arts, culture, and aesthetics.
Reflect on the social and economic conditions that created the context for hip-hop. How do these documentaries and stories impact your understanding of American history, urban American history, and the history of hip-hop?
