Chuck D finally

June 19, 2007

Chuck called in a week late and we only spoke for a few minutes. (FYI: Ron wrote the liner notes to the as yet unreleased PE record). I asked him to explain the term “conscious rap” for the audience, and to get a sense of what the term means to him. He talked about the artist being conscious of things outside of hip-hop culture, what had come before, specifically the political struggles faced by African Americans in previous decades. From his descriptions you get a sense that he does see “conscious rap” consisting of a particular mindset if not being a separate sub genre within rap music.

People in Memphis should find him at the Conscious Music conference later in the week.
