It's an amazing world where a few clicks leads me from boingboing's overly enthusiastic endorsement of what it calls 'Afrikaans rap-rave' (check out the comments too), to this chilling, compelling, greasy-sickening south african trash-rap (now taking the world by storm) to this pointless confection to wikipedia's dry dissection of bubblegum dance.
Now if I could just decide which I more wish I had never heard of…
Update: To ice the cake, according to the folks from South Africa in this comment thread, Die Antwoord are playing roles. The lead rapper, for example, is Waddy Jones, who is anglophone, not an Afrikaner.
Well there’s always THIS: http://econstories.tv/home.html if you haven’t seen it yet.
It could be worse.
It could be Korean gangsta rap… overheard at one of the local Korean grocery stores yesterday afternoon. Fortunately, I don’t have a URL.
