Dr. Regina Bradley on the rise of the hip hop South

Dr. Regina Bradley, author of the new book "Chronicling Stankonia" explains how the South’s hip hop generation used their music to respond to, remix and interpret their parents’ and grandparents’ civil rights struggles as well as the whole of Southern history. In addition to the unique sound created by sampling Southern blues, soul and funk, this was a unique perspective for hip hop at the moment.
