Sips & Stanzas presents…Dangerous Minds: Does Hip-hop Breed Violence & Straight Outta Compton Screening

Hip-hop, a genre born out of oppression, communicated the angst of people while celebrating triumphant nature, overcoming and persevering.  But critics, supporters, preachers and educators join us to debate the positive and negatives of Hip-Hop, comparing the genre of the 80s versus a current-day sound. While music changes and morphs with each generation, community leaders share their views on the direct/indirect impact Hip-Hop has on violence in our city and what we see within current-day experiences.

The rise of gangster rap, which included artists such as NWA, Ice T and Death Row Records artists, spoke to major social and political issues of that time (particularly police brutality). Join NMAAM as we dive deep into the discussion of violence as it relates to hip-hop.
