I have lived in the South most of my life. The food, the soil, the music, the accents, the air here is home to me. Southern hip hop gave me language for so much of what I experienced so I am excited to chat with Dr. Regina Bradley, a southern hip hop scholar and author of Chronicling Stankonia: The Rise of the Hip Hop South. Listen in as Dr. Regina and I talk about Outkast, quintessential Southern hip hop songs, and why southern hip hop must be studied through an academic lens.
You can learn more about Dr. Regina’s work and her new book at her website www.redclayscholar.com. Her book Chronicling Stankonia: The Rise of the Hip Hop South is available everywhere books are sold. You can also follow Regina on Twitter at @redclayscholar.
