Misogyny and Myth
MetadataShow full item record
Although many use misogynistic, materialistic, and violent lyrics in attempt to belie the notion that hip hop contains any manifestations of romantic love, I contend that not only is romantic love present in hip hop, but the love exhibited does not deviate substantially from common notions of romantic love in mainstream society. Using a definition of romantic love derived by classic explorations in the subject, romantic love will be explored in hip hop culture.
