4 Elements 2 Help End Deficit Thinking Theodore

4 Elements 2 Help End Deficit Thinking Theodore S. Ransaw Ph.D. Males of Color Achievement Gap Specialist K-12 Outreach Michigan State University Twitter.com/Transaw [email protected] The Four Elements Graffiti is the Black Sheep. B-boying is the bastard child of hip-hop. D-jaying is the loyal child who always does what it is told. Rap is the spoiled brat who is actually the youngest of the four (Crazy Legs in Malone, 2003, p. 132).

Hip-Hop isnt something you do its something you live! KRS-1 Graffiti Hip-hop started in the 1970s when a gang truce that included many of New Yorks adolescents was in place. A local D-jay, Afrika Bambaattaa came up with the idea of repositioning adolescents anger away from gang disputes and into music, dance, and graffiti (Nelson, 2004, p. 45). The result was the emergence in neighborhoods of Harlem and the Bronx of groups such as the Rock Steady Crew, Bronx City Bombers, and Zulu

Nation. I start to think and then I sink, into the paper like I was ink. When Im writing, Im trapped in between the lines, I escape when I finish the rhyme. Eric B & Rakim, I Know You Got Soul, Paid in Full, 1987 B-boying Subcultures form in communal and symbolic engagements with the larger system of late industrial culture; they're organized around, but not wholly determined by, age and class, and are expressed in the creation of styles. These styles are produced within specific historical and cultural "conjunctures; they are not to be read as simply resisting hegemony or as magical resolutions to social tensions - as earlier theorists had supposed. Rather subcultures cobble together (or hybridize) styles out of the images and material culture available to

them in the effort to construct identities which will confer on them "relative autonomy" within a social order fractured by class, generational differences, work etc. Hebdige, 1979 I came to get down - So get out your seats and jump around jump around House of Pain, Jump Around 1992 D-jaying Punk, in particular, was a unique mixture of an avant-garde cultural strategy, marketing savvy and working-class transgression produced in the face of a section of British youth's restricted access to consumer markets.

Hebdige, 1979 Reach and preach, through music Ill teach. Doug E. Fresh All the Way to Heaven Oh My God!, 1986 M.C.-ing Katz and Earp (1999) assert that the phenomenon of hiphop involves much more than the mere fact that White boys are imitating Black boys, and Black boys are not just copying Italian gangsters. What is really happening is that young boys and young men of all races are looking for representations of contemporary masculinity. Even Italian gangsters copied the first organized crime organization, Irish gangsters. All I hear is 'Lyrics, lyrics, constant controversy - Sponsors workin' 'round the clock - To try to stop my concerts early - Surely hip-hop was never a problem in Harlem - Only in Boston - After it bothered the fathers of daughters startin' to blossom
