Kickstart the Archive

[Updated] Hip-hop now occupies the place rock ’n’ roll once did in a number of ways. It has been the soundtrack for teenage rebellion (I’d argue that EDM does that now), and it has been around long enough that it’s clearly not a fad. But it hasn’t been around so long that it enjoys widespread cultural respect. For that reason among others, its history has been only occasionally and selectively told, and The NOLA Hip-Hop Archive hopes to remedy that.
