Abstract

Research Question: What is respectability politics and how does it influence Hip Hop and the Black community? I conducted research on respectability politics and how it influences Hip Hop and the Black community. I obtained my information from authors such as Tricia Rose, Johnnetta B. Cole, Tupac Shakur, Ava Duveray, Amanda Moras, Guillermo Rebollo-Gil, and Bakari Kitwana. My information came from an article, a journal, a documentary, a panel discussion at Brown University, a prominent Hip Hop Artist, and a book. Furthermore, I discuss the meaning of respectability politics and how it is prevalent in Hip Hop and relevant to the Black community. The results of my research are not very shocking, as it reflects the current trends in media and society.
