Quotes: Rap

The thing about Hip Hop today is it's smart, it's insightful. The way they can communicate a complex message in a very short space is remarkable

A certain administration which I won't call by name took the arts out of the schools, and that left the brothers out on the street with nothing, so they went to the turntables and started rhyming. Then they had a way to express themselves, and that's the birth of hip-hop.
—Isaac Hayes
