One of the things Dr. Lindsey finds so fascinating about hip hop is how it “holds a mirror up” to the issues in our society as whole. It was one of the first genres to talk about sex, sexual health, and societal issues directly, and hip hop continues to be a genre that reflects the cultural problems faced by every social group.
