Tik Tok and Hip Hop in The Muslim Home




Lost, or at least muddied, in that permanent triggering system is that TikTok creates cultural blurring on an astounding scale. It is an appropriation accelerant. Swimming in it for a while makes clear how easily the app jumbles together inputs and references, with varying levels of comfort and discomfort: white kids rapping along with hip-hop; seemingly straight bros playing with queer aesthetics; young people of all races embracing cowboy styles; and adolescents from many countries using common soundtracks for skits about timeless teen problems. All you need to participate is a phone and a desire to be seen.
The kiddo doing h/h in front of possible Muslim mom is lucky is a mom and not Orthodox Muslim dad. Mom plays both audience and background dancer.
