Abstract [en]

This article deals with rap music and with two distinct discourses in which rap artists habitually engage. It also deals with the way that one, in these, can find a dialectic between the special and the mundane, between succeeding-makin' it-and remaining loyal to the values of your community or culture-keeping it real. Furthermore, it deals with how the rap star Shawn Jay-Z Carter handles this dialectic, positing entrepreneurship as both a politics and an ethic, and how we, by reading his lyrics, are led to some forgotten localities in academic research-the disenfranchised, urban, marginalized, entrepreneurial 'hood..
