dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an autoethnography that examines Southern rap music, specifically Atlanta-based “snap music.” “Snap music” is criticized for not having any musical substance and ties to conventional rap music. I examine “snap music” in the form of a “musical autoethnography.” My examination of “snap music” challenges VIBE magazine’s characterizations of “snap music” and its similar artists as indecorous music. I provide a textual analysis of VIBE’s staff and operation as a form of Hip Hop journalism.
