How does place impact culture? In Seattle’s case, it means going against the grain. While hip hop thrived in New York and Los Angeles, individuals like Sir-Mix-A-Lot found success by styling to the beat of their own drum in the Pacific Northwest. Join Dr. Daudi Abe for a discussion of his book Emerald Street: A History of Hip Hop in Seattle and learn more about the growth of hip hop in our region.
