The thesis should discuss briefly the damage that has been done to black masculinity, the effects of slavery, which is necessary to understand the images of black males that are to be seen in literature and popular culture nowadays. The main focus of the thesis is to interpret the images in African American culture (rap music especially) that may be perceived both as subconscious overcompensation for the lost masculine identity and a new way of performing black masculinity that draws on the tradition set by people like Malcolm X, the Black Panthers or the cultural icon of Shaft. It will examine the attitude towards women and sexuality. In order to understand the hypermasculine nature of black men in nowadays popular culture, the thesis will dissect what it means to be a “bad nigga” and explore the way this image is glorified in African American culture.
Some of the artists included in the analysis are Jay-Z, Tupac, Big L, NWA, Biggie Smalls, Chuck D, Richard Wright, James Baldwin, Eldridge Cleaver, Huey Newton, Langston Hughes, Amiri Baraka, Claude McKay. The theoretical part on performativity is based on the work of Judith Butler
