Peace, on this episode Chris and REC were joined on the phone by author Sujatha Fernandes to talk about her work exploring the global dimensions of Hip-Hop from Paris to Caracas to Australia. As she writes in her latest book, Close to the Edge (Verso 2011) “The story of the global spread of hip hop is itself one of movement. A movement of ideas, a movement of commodities, a movement of people. If there is anything that marks this moment, it is as much the motion and mobility that bring us together as it is the boundaries and borders that divide us. Hip hop is a force defined by rupture and flow, and it remains to be seen whether global hip hoppers can reinvent themselves in the diaspora and build enduring links with their homelands” (189). We also briefly provide an update on the Occupy Wall Street mobilization, as well as hear commentary from Mumia Abu Jamal. Enjoy & Circulate!
