D-Maub takes us to school with his latest video to “Hip Hop Student,” off of his latest project The Missing Peace. Many thought that Hip Hop was just a fad when it began 40 years ago. But it is now a strong genre that has impacted all of culture and society. In the description stated about the song, D-Maub says “”Hip Hop Student” is expressing the realization of how the hip hop culture has raised this generation. It is a call to pray for the genre so that our youth will not be engulfed with the perishable things of this world.”
From money, sex, drugs and violence, these things are glorified in hip hop, and these images were creatively displayed in the “Hip Hop Student” video. The only question that remains is, “are you influencing hip hop, or is it influencing you?”
What do you think of the video and song? Is hip-hop influencing you or are you influencing hip hop?
