Global Hip Hop Part Deux (Diasporic Hues)

So part of my thinking about hip hop in its global context involves using the music and lyrics to conceptualize ideas of communal belonging as potentially capable of affiliating along diasporic channels of citizenship. The idea is that culture can be organized and interpolated through hip hop as an expression of counter-hegemonic epistemologies (see some of my earlier musings from previous blogs), and so I wanted to direct you all to the new Nas & Damien Marley album, Distant Relatives (May 2010). Check out the Nas and Damien interview below and keep making global, diasporic, interracial, and international hip hop connections my hip hop illiterates.
