What the (Bleep) Happened to Hip Hop?!

March 8, 2015

Move to Amend is very excited to be partnering with Hip Hop Congress in a new educational campaign called What the (Bleep) Happened to Hip Hop?!

Hip Hop Congress is an international grassroots organization working to evolve hip hop culture by inspiring social action and creativity within the movement. Artists and cultural workers see first hand the influence corporate power has to commodify liberatory art forms and take the mic from We The People.

What the (Bleep) Happened to Hip Hop?! is an educational campaign to address the corporatization of culture and how corporate power has co-opted our music, dance, and other arts and how to build a movement to end corporate rule. Culture is a dynamic process that both reflects and creates consciousness, and it plays an important role in building a grassroots movement to amend the Constitution. The dominant culture is typically the culture of the ruling class, and when the ruling class is a corporate oligarchy commodifying the artistic products of We the People, culture becomes a vehicle for indoctrination -- reinforcing racist, sexist, and classist stereotypes in order to divide us into manageable social groups the ruling corporate elite can control.
