Get Your Weekly Dose Of Hip-Hop History From Latino USA

Listen to a two-part radio segment about the Latino influences in hip-hop.

Latino USA, the weekly radio show distributed by NPR, recently aired the second hour-long episode of "A Latino History Of Hip-Hop." The two segments do the important work of tracing the impact Latino artists and culture had on the development of rap. In the first hour, producers Daisy Rosario and Marlon Bishop examine Latino contributions to the four areas that defined early hip-hop: MCing, DJing, graffiti, and break dancing. In the second, they follow rap as it becomes the dominant form of popular music in the ‘90s.

You can listen to both segments below.
