Text passagesin Polish hip-hop. An analysis of description of the urban space in selected rap lyricsThe goal of this article was to analyze the issue of how discourse of polish hip-hop describes cities. Mostly polish artist’s lyrics were discussed, they were investigated in the context of the whole hip-hop culture. Article was divided into three main analytic parts. The first one presents, how rappers “read” the city. Analyzed works treat the city space as structure, which expresses deeply hidden substance. The next chapter discusses the ways of representing city, they are considered to be “textual passages” – poetics of such texts is based on discontinuity, it tries to represent dynamics of ever changing space. The last part of article examines the topic of “district”, which in hip-hop is understood as the central space, building foundations of hip-hop’s ontology. This research shows unique coherence of many different texts, that were created in one subculture. Also, this research can be a point of departure for further examination of the presented topics.
