WUNC’s Frank Stasio talks with Grammy Award-winning producer and Jamla Records label head Patrick Douthit aka 9th Wonder about the pivotal moments in Hip-Hop and how the music shapes other elements of life, from fashion to social activism. This summer Douthit is offering “Hip-Hop in Context,” a 5-part lecture series at North Carolina State University. For the past six years Douthit has co-taught the popular History of Hip-Hop course at Duke University with Mark Anthony Neal.
