Finally got round to watching Dizzee on Newsnight. 'Mr Rascal' points out that Barack 'embraced hip hop, that's the way he got through to the kids, there was more young vote than ever'. I find it fascinating because a whole section of society who have been linked to crime and violence because of their music tastes (and remember that hip hop outsells country music Stateside) have a leader who understands that hip hop is not a gateway drug. No wonder they turned up to vote. Imagine a British PM who listed Dizzee or Wiley amongst his favourite artists.
Cheers maki for the link
