Since taking this class, I have gained a new outlook on the meaning of global hip hop. I came into the course with little knowledge of this music genre and I leave it knowing some really interesting things. I do not view all the music as one anymore and can tell what is being commercialized and what is true. I am able to pick out the main themes of hip hop in the songs and figure out the meaning the artist is trying to depict. This course has also introduced me to some feministic ideas that I have never been associated with. It has broadened my view on such ideas and I am interested in continuing to gain knowledge on such topics. One other item I have gained from this course is the fact that I am more interested in learning about hip hop from other countries and I plan to continue doing so.
