[Reggae] UNESCO: "...the music continues to act as a voice for all."
Reggae Music Makes it to the
Global Culture Heritage List
With this being said, what does this say about Hip Hop? The core values are not represented anymore. As, Hip Hop used to be the art, now there are just a handful of artists who embody the core values. Save J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, and now hopefully Meek Mill, not to many artists are socially aware on their album. Not like Public Enemy, Tupac, Fugees, and more that are even more qualified than the ones I mentioned. Is it safe to say that Hip Hop will never achieve this great reward as Reggae has received?
