Let's start with the topic: I don't see it as a 'vs' issue. Different scenes exist both individually & collectively. No contest #CultureFix

Do we believe in US exeptionalism in Hip-Hop? I don't listen to any US rap beside PE. No time & little interest. World's so big. #CultureFix

We believe in cross-border collaborations & supporting each other’s movements. #CultureFix

@PEPRradio Its not a competition, on the contrary, I do believe Global #HipHop is somehow REMINDING #USHipHop about the #Essence #culturefix

Someone said "UK Hip-Hop is 15yrs behind US". What does that mean? What & who defines the standard? Financially or artistically #CultureFix
BIG HASS @BIG_HASS
#culturefix Majority the #HipHop that is coming out of #Arabia & #Africa is about The essence of this Art-form

@AkrobatikMC There’s about million radio shows around the world only focusing on US Hip-Hop #CultureFix

@PEPRradio We are behind in #Liberia. Lack technology & info. But doesn't mean the art isn't up to standard. #CultureFix

Also, Hip-Hop has got more elements than rap as I am sure we all know. How are those other elements doing in US, I don't know #CultureFix
Takun J @TakunJ
@BIG_HASS Agree. We keep to the roots of hip hop as a tool for social change. @PEPRradio #CultureFix

Either way, we have no interest attacking US Hip-Hop. We can diss mainstream radio & major labels, but no artists really #CultureFix

Hip-Hop - as we understand it - is an American expression with roots in Africa via Jamaica etc. It captured world's attention #CultureFix
Natalie @NatalieCrue
Relationships matter in #CultureFix. Take a moment to introduce yourself. Where are you from and what do you do?
nora rahimian @norarahimian
@BIG_HASS Global HH isn't homogenous. Some of the #Africa stuff is just as material/superficial as US HH. Nigeria, for example #CultureFix
