Conscious, gangster, underground, commercial, Midwest, Dirty South, and everything in between — everybody’s got a little story to tell. These in-depth interviews explore what the person finds meaningful in the music and how the music impacted their life, particularly the social issues that play a role in influencing who the person has become. Interviewing people from all walks of life, Rhymes & Reasons hopes to highlight the beauty in hip-hop as we come to understand the shared nature of our stories.
