Hip hop in the Western world has, over the course of its history, evolved from its early status as the music and poetry of the street to its current position, nestled squarely within the mainstream. But in other global cultures, its marriage of rhythm and rhyme remains challenging to the status quo and still carries a whiff of revolution. Here, viewers are introduced to Mongolia’s burgeoning hip hop scene, from the young upstarts who are moving the country’s music and politics forward, to traditional musicians who have incorporated elements of hip hop into their own efforts.
