Hiphopography aims at centering hip-hop participants’ perspectives as grounded in experience and expertise. Placing the engagement with hip-hop participants at the heart of its methodology, hiphopography acknowledges and includes participants’ agencies, reflexive capacities, and active theorizations on their own hip-hop practices and involvements in hip-hop cultural worlds as central to the production of knowledge on hip-hop. Hiphopography offers ethical, and socially justice-oriented ways to engage in the knowledge and power relationship. Taking my research with Los Angeles hip-hop communities and the 2022 class “Rap, Race, and Reality” taught by Chuck D of Public Enemy at UCLA as examples, this talk considers the possibility for the co-production of hip-hop and music knowledges in academia. Further, it explores how the extension of hiphopography to the university teaching environment can impact music studies and assert a commitment to epistemic decolonization. 

 

Dr. Samuel Lamontagne is a UC Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow with the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies and the History Department at UCLA.
