  • Story: Over the last 20 years, hip hop has become a key form of cultural expression for many Americans, including desis. Political and artistic, the musical genre was created in the 1970s by African Americans as a tool of power, protest, and personal expression. Desi artists have embraced the energy of that movement to create and perform music that is simultaneously art, activism, and entertainment.
