Origins of Hip-Hop


Hip-Hop As Therapy

Season 1, Ep. 3

Hip-hop has been called many things: a culture, a religion, and a way of life. For the people of the Bronx in the ‘70s, hip-hop was a place to belong and a place of refuge from the chaos. In this episode, Caz talks with experts Dr. Jaleel K. Abdul-Adil and Dr. Ebony Utley about the ways hip-hop transforms, heals, and expands on conventional forms of self-care. He also sits down with artists Busy Bee and Grand Wizzard Theodore to share what hip-hop meant to them when the going got tough. Community organizer and educator Melissa Libran also joins to explore how hip-hop educates and builds positive futures for the next generation. Tune in and bring a notebook because you’ll want to write all of this down.
