Observations… Ruminations… Ponderances… & Rants from Another Perspective

Global Hip Hop

leave a comment »

I remember when rap couldn’t get a video on MTV and to hear it you had to listen to get mixtapes (my brother had them on 8 tracks).   For the last few years hip hop culture has gone worldwide.

Hip hop aficionado Jeff Chang‘s new book Total Chaos: The Art & Aesthetics of Hip-Hop, is about how rap has crossed the globes.  His previous book Can’t Stop Won’t Stop is about the history of rap.

Listen to an interview Chang did with News and Notes here.
