MC Yogi

In another sort of strange example of how hip hop is really crossing cultural barriers, the South Asian blog Sepia Mutiny featured a man called MC Yogi

Not that this is any indication of anything, but it’s an interesting view of the cultural context.  MC Yogi is, well, a white guy.  But he uses his rhymes to teach a lot of South Asian youth about history and religion.

How much more badass can you get unless you rap about Gandhi and Hanuman in the same track?

This guy’s not the greatest emcee of all time, but it’s just fascinating to see who he is and what he’s using hip hop for.
