Filed Under: ,


Inspired by the publication of Check the Technique V.2, journalist Brian Coleman's second volume of "Liner Notes for Hip-Hop Junkies," this discussion covers hip hop production practices and the hip hop creative process as both musical techniques and social techniques. What is the history behind the making of some of hip hop's greatest albums and songs? How are tracks made? How can the process of assembling a track be applied to larger social and cultural practices?

BRIAN COLEMAN: Journalist & author of Check The Technique Vols 1 & 2, And Rakim Told Me: Wax Facts Straight From The Original Artists
BRIAN 'B+' CROSS: Photographer, filmmaker, UCSD professor & author of The 1993 Classic, It's Not About A Salary, It's About A Reality: Rap, Race, And Resistance In Los Angeles
