    The influence of hip-hop on American culture is undeniable, but can hip-hop help curb inner-city crime and build trust among African-Americans and the police? Paul Butler thinks so.

    Butler is the author of Let’s Get Free: A Hip-Hop Theory of Justice and a professor of law at George Washington University.

    During this discussion, Butler makes a very profound statement about incarcerated African-Americans. There are more African-Americans in prison now than there were slaves in 1850.

    What role do you think Hip-Hop can play in reducing crime and violence in African-American communities?
