Hip-hop was the platform for free speech essentially it was the voice of the voiceless. Besides just being ‘party music’, the music and the lyrics held a spiritual and intellectual weight. It gave the people an opportunity to speak about what they thought could be possible. Thus hip-hop encouraged the achievement of values derivable from life, it recognized independence, individuality and most importantly- it had the people’s interest at heart. This is the true soul of hip-hop.” – by Immortal Technique
