"Yes, KRS-One and BDP, the crew assembled here are philosophers! Believe that. In Hip Hop and Philosophy, this almighty posse is droppin' science by moving from rhyme to reason. They give props to great philosophers and peep philosophical problems through hip-hop lenses while staying true to the spirit of the culture." "They show and prove that rap classics by lauryn Hill, OutKast, and the Notorious B.I.G. can help us uncover the meaning of love articulated in Plato's Symposium. We see how Run-D.M.C., Snoop Dogg, and Jay-Z can teach us about self-consciousness and the dialectic in Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. And we learn that Rakim, 2Pac, and 50 Cent knowledge us on the conception of God's essence expressed in Aquinas's Summa Theologica." "These philosophers delight in showing us how a love for rhymes over beats and for pure reason, far from being incompatible, can be mastered and mixed to contemplate life's most profound mysteries.
