Lawyer Angela Rye Reveals The Difference Between Hip-Hop And Pop-Rap

Lawyer Angela Rye Reveals The Difference Between Hip-Hop And Pop-Rap

Angela Rye is an American attorney and the Principal and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm in Washington, DC. She is a liberal political commentator on CNN and an NPR political analyst. She served as the executive director and general counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus for the 112th Congress.

On the latest episode of People’s Party With Talib Kweli, lawyer Angela Rye has shared her thoughts about the hip-hop community and culture. She said:

“This may be something I get trolled for, but this is my truth. I believe there’s a distinction between hip-hop and pop-rap. I think that right now, there’s a dominance of pop-rap, but I also think that it’s not all the way fair to say, ‘It’s always been Black.’”

She also continued to tear down the barriers and walls that exist. She said:

“There was a group called the Beastie Boys. But it was overwhelmingly Black then and it’s still overwhelmingly Black now and I think the reality of it is, it allows people to express however they see fit. It’s always had a multicultural audience and supporters and fans, more power to the people. If you can relate to what folks are talking about, great! I think that’s exactly what we need… to tear down the barriers and walls that exist. If the bridge can be hip-hop, cross it.”
