Hip-hop isn’t just a musical genre … it’s a world of art, culture and self-expression. That world is on vivid display at the Oakland Museum‘s new exhibition, Respect: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom. The show celebrates the Bay Area’s vibrant hip-hop scene and highlights the political, societal and musical forces behind it. In this hour, we’ll speak to some of the show’s contributors. And we’d like to hear from you: how has hip-hop changed your world?
