Hip hop is a mouthpiece for self expression and at its core is being a voice for the people. To what extent artists use the genre to highlight social and political issues is their discretion. I've had interviews and conversations with some artists who've said that sometimes one cannot always say what they really want to in their music 'cause they'll get blocked or shut down. So I guess it depends, but luckily music is not the only way we can express ourselves in our communities today. We asked Onlifers about whether they thought artists should be involved in social and political conversations. Here's what they had to say.
