kids and hip hop

it should come as a suprise to exactly no one that hip hop still gets a raw deal when it comes to the kids who count themselves as it's fans. people have always been blaming music on kids bad behaviour and lack of boundries, and it would appear as though hip hop has completely wrested the title of bad music away from heavy metal and industrial music. but if that's really the case, then why do all these projects keep popping up that show the benefit of introducing kids to hip hop?
awhile ago, i linked you to the rapper's delight club, and today i give you a track from the wilcannia mob. listen and think about it.
(big thanks to jesse and audra for finding the song and getting it to me!)
