What I've Learned
I'm not the expert.
I'm not always in control.
Students need help to understand the arguments AGAINST hip hop.
Composition can be trial and error as much as it can be methodical.
Composition is circular, not linear
Students appreciate approaching them at their level.
Students appreciate honesty, especially when I don't know or am uncomfortable.
Hip Hop Pedagogy is just good teaching.
Hip Hop is NOT a magic bullet.
Improvise

This feelin' is unmatched
This feelin' is brought to you by adrenaline and good rap
Black Pendleton ball cap (West West West)
We don't share the same synonym fall back.
Been in it since before the internet had new acts
Mimicking radio's nemesis made me wack
My innocence limited the experience lacked
Ten of us with no tentative tactic that cracked
The mind of a literate writer but I did in fact
You admitted it once I submitted it wrapped in plastic
Remember scribblin' scratchin' dilligent sentences backwards
Visiting freestyle cyphers for your reaction
