Watch: The Real Hip-Hop

A girlfriend of mine sent over this video and I was instantly moved. It’s a short documentary by Nas and The Guardian on how hip-hop affects different cultures. They cover the countries of Cambodia, Yemen, Uganda and Colombia.

I could relate so much having grown up in the Philippines (and wished Nas/The Guardian included the PH in the documentary.) Seriously, if they’ve seen what I’ve seen growing up, where a lot of inspiration and influence comes from watching people in hip-hop, and how we translate the culture within our own communities, they would be impressed.

In my country, hip-hop LIVES. xx
