Check out Japanese emcee?Rappagariya’s MV to ‘Senrei’ from 1996

Had to share this with you guys. We’re going back in time with this one, as Senrei is a track from Rappagariya dating all the way back to ’96 (as if that’s that long ago). Regardless, it has that 90’s groove and “start of Hip Hop” sound. It’s so dope how Japan embraced a foreign culture even back then, when getting information on world music was so much harder. They really liked what they were seeing done in the West and decided to create some stuff of their own. It’s cool to see two cultures I love so much blend together. Super cool.

Buy Senrei on iTunes and Amazon
