In A Tribe Called Quest's hit song, "Can I Kick It," they declare their song as "a rhythm recipe that you'll savior." So, how can their music and other hip-hop hits light a spark for rhymes, rhythm, and similar literary tools? The poetry of hip-hop: A playlist for your classroom offers guidance. This hour-long playlist promises "squeaky clean" tracks (including "Can I Kick It?") for teachers to play in their classrooms and seeks to demonstrate that "connections to literacy come in many forms." The resource embeds the Spotify playlist of 15 songs described as "empowering, uplifting, and thoughtful in their messages," for easy listening and includes brief descriptions of each song and artist. Also included is an approximately 20-minute YouTube clip of a conversation between renowned scientist Neil DeGrasse Tyson and GZA, a member of the Wu-Tang Clan known for weaving science into his songs. The list was published in 2018 on Britannica Digital Learning, a site on a mission to empower educators and students alike "to ignite curiosity and spread the joy of discovery."
