I love it. Japanese and, especially, Korean hip-hop culture is phenomenal. French breakdancers tend to be really aggressive in their style, pulling off stuff that you couldn't dream of. Japanese and Korean breakers are so clean and fast, it's nuts. I saw a documentary the other day, I forgot the name but, I'll find it out if you want, on African hip-hop. It was mind-blowing. They rapped in French and it was just fantastic. If we, meaning Americans, would open up the net to cast out over all the other countries, it's amazing what we would find.

I've always believed that hip-hop isn't a purely American sub-culture. Like punk music, it's to express yourself often in areas where you don't have access to the best music schools, instruments, art classes, dance classes/studios, etc. So, it's almost surprising that we took this long to acknowledge other country's contributions to this wonderful culture.

It's the musical equivalent of sitting on a whoopee cushion. Sure it's an immature, time honored joke, but it's still funny.

That is the perfect analogy!

Good for them. I like what some of the Latin American countries did with Reggaton. Artists like Pitbull have been able to make big inroads in the US Market.
