Is it Live or Memorex? Contrast and Comparison of Selected Hip Hop Songs John W. Means, Jr. Portland State University BST 411/511 006 SEMINAR: HISTORY OF HIP HOP CRN14923 FALL 2012 October 17, 2012 Abstract In 1982, Memorex, an Imation brand for consumer electronics and accessories, had a marketing advertisement campaign that claimed the viewer or listener could not tell the difference between a live production and one recorded on their product.

This paper addresses that very question as it relates to several Hip-Hop songs. Are certain songs real representations of a lifestyle or of a culture?

-- Attributed to Abraham Lincoln: Dec 18, 1840. End the Reefer Madness In the 1930’s the United States’ government bombarded Americans with blatant lies about marijuana. Termed the “reefer madness” era by some, Americans were made to believe that marijuana would cause insanity, violence, and sexual promiscuity (unknown author 1).

The word hippie derives from hipster, and was initially used to describe people who created their own communities, listened to psychedelic rock, embraced the sexual revolution, and used drugs such as cannabis and LSD to explore alternative states of consciousness. On January 1967, the Human Be-In at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco popularized hippie culture, leading to the legendary Summer of Love on the West Coast of the United States, and the 1969 Woodstock Festival on the East Coast. In Mexico, the jipitecas formed La Onda Chicana and gathered at Avándaro, while in New Zealand, nomadic house truckers practiced alternative lifestyles and promoted sustainable energy at Nambassa. In the United Kingdom, mobile "peace convoys" of New age travelers made summer pilgrimages to free music festivals at Stonehenge. The hippie legacy can be observed in contemporary culture in myriad forms — from health food, to music festivals, to contemporary sexual mores, and even to the cyberspace revolution.
