Aims and Scope (from publisher): The Journal of Hip Hop Studies (JHHS) is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year. JHHS publishes critically engaged, culturally relevant, rigorously researched, and astute analyses of Hip Hop. The journal positions itself within Hip Hop culture and the Black freedom struggle. JHHS' role in the culture is to provide an opportunity for those who are both academic and Hip Hop to have a voice in academia. JHHS' cultural immersion ensures better scholarship. At the same time, Hip Hop has always provided a voice for the voiceless. JHHS' recognition of Hip Hop's liberatory actions leads the journal to focus on publishing scholarship that speaks truth to power and challenges the cultural hegemony being propagated by White Supremacy. Moreover, in light of the oppression that Black and Brown scholars endure in academia, JHHS provides a space for them to achieve tenure through publishing and a platform to speak out against the injustices they experience. JHHS primarily publishes essays, poems, short stories, and book reviews that are grounded in and intersect with the field of Hip Hop studies.

JHHS aims to continue the African diasporic freedom struggle and unite, organize and fight with other oppressed peoples of the world. JHHS' aims mirror the development and growth of Hip Hop. Hip Hop, an African diasporic phenomenon, which begin its flows and ciphas in Africa, manifested in the Bronx and spread to every corner of the world, speaks truth to power and offers a voice to the voiceless. Hip Hop has also played an active role in providing an identity to dispossessed and disenfranchised people.
