Металитературность русского рэпа 2010-х годов: на пути к медиальной автономности
The article explores the metaliterary dimensions of Russian Rap in the 2010s. The very recent Rap legacy is analyzed and theorized in terms of certain functions of metareferentiality under the global metareferential turn and in the light of technological and sociocultural contexts. The metapoetics of Russian Rap reflects the grand-scale trend toward the mutual blending and interference of different media with one one another. At the same time, it attests to the immanent need for a musical genre to reestablish its medial essence in a new sociocultural space, rebuild its own history, and join the literary tradition. The study contributes to the current rise in our awareness of the blurred borders of literature, which are increasingly dependent on individual experiential parameters, so that verbal means migrate easily from one artistic medium to another.
