Hip Hop for the World

A colleague of mine from over in the Musicology department posted this video to the Music and Culture Society group. It’s hard to turn down anything involving KRS-One. It’s always a bizarre breath of fresh air hearing hip-hop in other languages, particularly in places people in the West rarely associate with hip-hop. This video is uploaded through San E’s VEVO account (he is the Korean rapper who appears first, after KRS’ intro), so it appears that he coordinated the video production, at least. I’ll be back soon with a big series of posts about teaching Musical Geography in 100-level courses. For now, if you’ve got 6 minutes to spare, take a trip around the world with a bunch of talented MC’s.
