Based on the readings this week, answer the two following questions in 150 words per question:
1. In this weeks’ readings the Puerto Rican and Jamaican voice (specifically DJ Kool Herc losing his accent) were omitted from hip hop/rap culture while the Chicano voice was avidly expressed. In your opinion, what factors contributed to this binary of resistance and conformity? In other words, why do you think Chicanos held on to their language and slang, where other ethnic groups did not?
2. In hip hop/rap culture, how important is a name in the quest for identity formation? Use examples from the texts.
