Redefining What It Means to Be a Man

Today, I have a guest post on the website “The Word is Bond.”

It’s featured in this month’s “Food for Thought” column.

The article is entitled “RE: DEFinition – Changing our Perception of Masculinity in Hip-Hop”

Thanks for showing me support. 

This is an important topic to discuss when it comes to hip-hop music and culture. We don’t often stop to consider our roles in this culture.

It’s time for us to redefine what it means to be a man in hip-hop music. We can show vulnerability. We can stop villainizing the feminine. We can show our wives, mothers, aunts, and grandmothers in a positive light. We can do a lot more than what we have been doing. 

I hope you enjoy the article. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.
