One of the fundamental ways that we can properly change society moving forward is through the education system. Our leaders of today are so influential in the future because children use them as a framework of success. Which cause them to mirror and match their every move.
Since the genesis of hip-hop and rap music, education has been a minimal focus of the musical content. Often rappers applaud not going to school and “making it.” But what does that really mean?
