What's the connection between religion and rap?
In a new episode of the KPBS Explore podcast, "The Parker Edison Project," we speak with Roy Whitaker whose "Hip Hop & Religion" class at San Diego State University explores the scholastic and spiritual roots of rap.
Then world-renowned rap legend Myka 9 talks hip-hop history and how to channel a higher spirit through freestyle.
Stick around for a musical performance from Zzay at the end of the show.
What comes to mind when you think of American culture? The Parker Edison Project works to expand the cliché answer to that question. It's a podcast that zooms way in on what really makes a culture — food, music, style, sex, fashion and more. Join host and co-creator Parker Edison for insightful conversations about creativity and community, all through the lens of Black America. This is the Parker Edison Project, a sonic exploration of what's considered American, where each episode starts with a thought-provoking talk and ends with a musical bang.
