dc.description.abstract This research paper aims to explain how knowledge is presented and structured in representations of reality through Hip Hop discourse. It is through metaphors that emcees, in this case KRS-One, move themselves along the quality of space to increase their ethos as they present their content/knowledge. Working definitions of culture and Hip Hop are explored as well as the historical context of Hip Hop and African American rhetoric as they pertain to Hip Hop. I analyzed KRS-One’s work to see specifically how he uses metaphors to move himself along the quality space and how exactly he presents and structures knowledge through metaphor in his music. en
