I’m in the middle of a chapter for a book I’m writing (with a co-author). The chapter is on the connection between the Existentialist notion of “absurdity” and their notion of “authenticity.” One point that we are making is that Existential authenticity is much like the hip-hop concept of representing. I think the connection is actually very strong, but what I really need is a set of lyrics from a hip-hop song that states what representing is. Can anyone help? If you can, put the stanza, along with the song title and artist, in the comments!
