A topic that interests me greatly is globalization. As I've traveled I've seen the effects of globalization EVERYWHERE. A topic that especially interests me is the globalization of hip-hop. I suppose my many years invested as a hip-hop musician and my interest in hip-hop in general makes globalization concerning hip-hop especially intriguing. Here's a list of links concerning globalization in hip-hop (most of the links revolve around Japanese hip-hop):
Ian Condry’s Online Site.
Hip-Hop’s Origin in America.
Japanese Hip-Hop History.
Wikipedia’s Info on Japanese Hip-Hop.
Criticism of the Japanese “Scene”.
Wikipedia’s Description of Globalization.
