Posthuman Sub-Bass

(p.129) Epilogue
Posthuman Rap

Justin Adams Burton

Oxford University Press

Posthuman Rap leads to a posthuman vestibule, connected to and aware of neoliberal humanism but situated just outside of it, in a place where we might imagine other ways of being human. Big K.R.I.T.’s car, quaking with sub-bass blasting from his woofer, is exactly this kind of vestibule. K.R.I.T., working with AfroFuturist materials, uses it to create big bangs and new worlds beyond our own. But before he can call entire planets into being, he must first tune his vestibule to receive and transmit vibrations from beyond the edge of human perception. It’s from this vantage point, staring through the vibrating glass of his car, that he can imagine other ways of being human.

Keywords:   Big K.R.I.T, hip hop, sub-bass, sound studies, AfroFuturism, posthuman, Zandria Robinson, Steve Goodman
