VELEZ QUINTERO, Andrés. Construction of subjectivity in both male and female young rappers: beyond the mass media experience. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2009, vol.7, n.1, pp.289-320. ISSN 1692-715X.

The construction of subjectivity that revolves around the experience with Rap music is a complex phenomenon in which we can distinguish both the variety of experiences that are accumulated in a multiple social interaction and the variety of scenarios where these encounters and exchanges take place. The mass media are an important scenario and an agent that promotes the approaching between cultural subjects and objects, for example, between male and female youngsters and Rap. However, in the election of male toward female youngsters, as the key referent in the constitution of their subjectivities, this experience with the mass media is alternatively treated along with others, where the subjectivities developed in the neighborhood, on the street and with peers have a prominent place. The sociological study of the male and female youths and Rap is based, thus, on the careful observation of the diverse experiences of the subjects, of the scenarios and of the moments (subjective and social temporality) where and when these experiences are developed. All of this is preliminary to interpretation, not to fall in abstract reasoning.

Keywords : Experience; young people; peers; socialization; mass media; Rap.
