Metacognition: Using rap to unpack a scientific investigation of adaptive expertise in rap experts


Visual Arts / Performance


This presentation includes a performance of the song, “Metacognition” from my album, “The Kings’ Lessons, Vol. 1”. The song describes my recent investigation of adaptive expertise in rap experts. The performance will be followed by a thorough analysis of all lyrics, and a discussion of the ways in which the song contextualizes the research in the most authentic way possible—i.e., embedding it in the knowledge forms of the Hip Hop Kulture from which it is derived.
