Hip Hop on Trial at Intelligence Squared June 26th

Hip-hop on trial: Hip-hop doesn't enhance society, it degrades it

From the Intelligence Squared website:” This June, Intelligence Squared and Google team up for a never-before-seen global debate on hip-hop.

Is rap an art form that gives the street a voice? Or is it all just money, misogyny and materialism?

Come and see celebrated civil rights activist Jesse Jackson, computer scientist and composer Jaron Lanier, hip-hop pioneer and legend KRS-One and many more stars lock horns in the unique Versus courtroom debate format. Some of our speakers will be on stage in London, others beamed in from around the world thanks to the Google+ Hangout technology.

Be part of the buzz of the London audience, be part of the event beamed across the web to millions. Come and witness the future of the global mind-clash at the Versus hip-hop debate, live at the Barbican.”
