The Crossover: 50 Years of Hip Hop and Sports
It has now been 50 years since a new genre of music was birthed out of the Bronx: Hip Hop. And over the last half century, it has grown and spread across the globe to become one of America’s greatest exports.
And throughout its life, the genre has developed this symbiotic-like relationship with sports. They became two pillars of Black culture… empowering a community to be heard and celebrated against the backdrop of cultural oppression and political persecution.
So today, ahead of the premiere of E:60’s “The Crossover”, our good friend, Justin Tinsley, joins the show to explain how hip hop, and sports, became the dominant voices of a generation.
You can check out the latest E60 special, "The Crossover: 50 Years of Hip Hop and Sports" narrated by Busta Rhymes, tonight at 7:30 Eastern on ESPN or afterwards on ESPN plus.
