Hip Hop's greatest gift isn't rap music

The discussions and celebrations around #HipHop50 and the Hip Hop 50th anniversary were great, but missed a lot. To fully appreciate its golden anniversary, we must consider that Hip Hop's greatest contribution to humanity isn’t any of its singular or collective elements. Instead, it lies in Hip Hop’s intersection with other aspects of the human experience, and how its unique artistic, cultural and social characteristics create powerful new tools to help uplift lives, livelihoods and communities.
