Samir Meghelli, Assistant Professor in the Department of African American Studies at UIUC, discusses the role of historians concerning the documentation and preservation of hip-hop. He uses James G. Spady and his book Nation Conscious Rap, among many other scholars and writers, to support his argument and elaborate on their importance in inquiring deeper into the culture and establishing a relationship with marginalized communities involved in the hip-hop movement.
