NAHMEAN EPISODE 2: SENSATIONALIST JOURNALISM IN HIP-HOP

Posted by J. Tinsley on June 1, 2009

Lost in the traffic jam that is the information superhighway, the line between journalism and tabloids become harder and harder to decipher with each passing day. Even I am guilty of falling guilty to it at times. Ultimately, I’d love to get into the field of music journalism and feel I am making the right moves towards accomplishing that dream, so when pieces like this are put together, attention is always paid in the highest degree.

Nah Right and John Public return with their second episode of the highly informative series “NahMean”. This installment discusses sensationalism in hip-hop journalism. Here’s the synopsis.

NahRight and John Public continue their “talk-back” series about what people on the street are concerned about. Here, the issue of sensationalist journalism in hip-hop is explored from both an artist and fan perspective. We interviewed managers, engineers, fans and artists to get their perspective on what is going on in the culture and what NEEDS to be going on.

Indeed.

Hit the jump for episode one.
