"Word Up!" 004

The goal of the show's creator was to take pre-conceived notions about hip-hop, and ask, "Are these notions valid?" In some cases, "Word Up!" cements previous understandings of hip-hop, but often adds a twist. In some cases, "Word Up!" smashes previously accepted notions about hip hop, and demands that members of the audience expand their own views of this form.
