African-Americans, Africans, and Hip-Hop

In this podcast, two of the students in the Hip Hop in Africa course discuss African and African American communities. The students, one from Kenya, and the other from Nigeria, pose 3 questions:

  1. What do you think causes the tension between Africans and African-Americans?
  2. What role has hip-hop played in bridging that gap?
  3. Why do male artists from both cultures seem to collaborate more than women?
