Let’s Talk – Who does Hip Hop belong to? Is the history of White Privilege continuing with Macklemore’s Grammy Award for Best Album of the Year? Can rap music ever transcend race and class? Or is it too indelibly tied into the Black Urban Culture?

Hip-Hop and Basketball

Hip-hop culture has shaped basketball apparel, player self-expression, and musician-athlete relationships. The two cultures share origin stories and social-cultural struggles, showing this affinity. Signature sneakers, flashy accessories, and bold fashion choices on and off the court show the stylistic connection, while rap songs and quotable lyrics honor basketball heroes. Hip-hop has also been pursued by many basketball stars, cementing their mutually beneficial relationship. Celebrate our basketball players while chowing down on M and M Soul Food.

When: Friday, February 9, 5 p.m.
Where: Gym 2
