56th Street Round Table: Rap Today + Its Future

The internet age has had a huge effect on rap, with production progressing at a bewildering rate. Recording rap music at home is not much more difficult than using Skype, an ease of use that—along with ample digital distribution and a progressive attitude towards giving away music—has exploded the genre. Has that been for the better? How do you define talent? And what does all this change mean for the future of rap?


Speakers:
Jon Caramanica, Pop Music Critic, The New York Times
Kilo Kish, rapper
Matthew Schnipper, Editor-in-Chief, 
The Fader
