Many of us grew up on Wu-Tang, but what do they listen to in the Nihon? Hip-hop music is universal no matter where you go, and anime like Samurai Champloo and Durarara!! have shown us that Japan can appreciate it as well. Learn about Japanese rap culture, its beginnings, its subcultures and its influence on anime.
