Why Ben Shapiro Is Wrong About Rap

From Youtube, "Well, looks like it's that time of year again. When Ben Shapiro (or anyone else) argues that rap and hip hop aren't technically considered music, they're flying in the face of basically all established scholarship on the topic. And it's not like we're just making this stuff up, either: We have good reasons for interpreting music (and specifically hip hop) the way we do. They're not even complicated reasons, which makes it mystifying to me that Shapiro's been repeating this same argument for at least a decade, but still, someone's gotta explain why he's wrong and I guess that someone is me."
