Title Representing the Marginalized Other : The Swedish Hip-hop Group Advance Patrol
Author(s) Lindholm, Susan
Date 2014
English abstract
Hip-hop artists are often perceived as societal critics who speak for, or represent a marginalized other, while at the same time re-presenting or staging themselves as individual artists. This article sets out to provide a more detailed account of the representation of such a marginalized other in Swedish Hip-hop by tracing the ways in which representation – as both speaking for and staging – is connected to the marginalized other in the lyrics of the Malmö-based Hip-hop group Advance Patrol. It argues that the representations in their lyrics between 2003 and 2006 shift – between criticizing the logic of “we” against “them” that creates the marginalized other, and an affirmation of such marginalization. These shifting representations thus represent it as a concept that can never be fully assimilated into a dominant hegemonic structure and thus as a concept that resists appropriation into forms of solidarity that claim to know or speak its “truth”.
