Hip Hop is a global phenomenon, and its feminine voice is exposing new frontiers of creativity. Rooted in the five elements, Hip Hop has grown to nurture socio-spiritual growth and community development worldwide. As further evidence of this, World Hip Hop Market, Nomadic Wax, and Detroit’s DJ LaJedi have joined forces with artists from over 15 nations to release World Hip Hop Women: From The Sound Up.
“We offer you an alternative, all feminine, all-star representative, all perspective, all nation, the global champion, call it the reckoning, all elements, all natural, it’s effortless.” – World Hip Hop Women hostess Eternia, taken from her track, “The BBQ Remix (ft. Tiye Phoenix & Jean Grae)”
On January 11, 2013, Rapper PPS the Writah was interviewed on Le Grand Rendez-Vous, a national Senegalese Television show. In the interview PPS provides more insight into his beliefs as well as his hip hop music. Don’t miss his most recent video “Weerul Ci Mane” produced by Nomadic Wax shown at minute 3:50 in the interview.
In this video, Ben Herson, the founder of Nomadic Wax, speaks at a forum at UCLA on “Global Perspectives on Youth & Violence.”
The forum was in March 2009 but the video is still very relevant. It provides a detailed account of hip hop throughout Africa including Senegal, Tanzania, and South Africa as well as the impact of modern technology on hip hop music & the youth population.
