Spin: “The Death and Resurrection of Conscious Rap, Pt. 3.”

one comment

Part three is up (here’s pt. 1 and pt. 2) and it doesn’t give you another history lesson or anything, it just focuses on the two guys worthy of the title “conscious rapper,” while updating and complicating the term in really interesting ways.

Two rappers who I think represent the vanguard of conscious hip-hop are Big K.R.I.T., a painfully sincere MC/producer, and Kristmas, an earthy lyricist and cell-phone salesman (and friend to buzzing Alabama rappers G-Side). Both are products of the Internet, but not the obnoxious, of-the-moment, blog sector; they exist in a world where it’s simply possible to build a name and fanbase without the luxury of conventional promotion…
