BlackBerry Conscious Rap Radio is a 24-hour network of Conscious Rap music by some of the most prolific Rap and Hiphop artists of our time. Conscious Hiphop is a subgenre of Hiphop music that was developed in the 1980s as a way of turning rap music into a call for political and/or social action and a form of social activism. Inspired by 1970s political preachers such as The Last Poets and musician Gil Scott-Heron, Public Enemy was the first predominately political Hiphop group. It has helped to create a new form of social expression for subordinate groups to speak about their exclusions, injustices and lack of power.
Conscious Rap is the use of Hiphop music to send political messages to inspire action or social change or to convince the listener of a particular worldview. There is no all-encompassing political Hiphop ideology; rather, there are multiple perspectives that range anywhere from Marxism to the values of the Five Percent Nation.
