Sunday, 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM, Lake Room

In this workshop, we will discuss how rap evolved historically, how it developed over time and how to write a rap text. We will listen to some rap songs of the 80s, 90s, and 21st century, talk about the social, economic and cultural background of the hip hop culture. Last but not least, we will produce some lyrics and in case you're happy with the result, feel free to perform in the open stage session.
