More material from class yesterday, here’s one of the videos that I showed at the end of the class. I’ve also included some links to commentary that might be of interest.

And, related to this video, is an article about the NBA dress code that raises some of the issues about race, hip hop culture and sports in the NBA. You might also be interested in looking at Todd Boyd’s Young, Black, Rich and FamousĀ (2003), which raised questions about the hip hop/basketball connection more than a decade ago.
