In search of hip-hop at...Art Basel

Okayplayer TV traveled all the way to Miami’s Art Basel happening for the latest edition of our ongoing series/quest, a mission we call In Search Of Hip-hop… Our South Coast correspondent for a day, DJ T*O*N*Y stuck a mic in the front of just about every artsy face in the place, mostly to establish that there was not a lot of room for hip-hop in their arty hearts (some tried though: “I have trip-hop.”) There was room, however, for fire-breathers, masked Eyes Wide Shut-style beauty queens, wheelie-popping rickshawallahs, a church choir, a very faded Theophilus London and of course, a whole lot of doodles on the wall. Late in the game, Hip-hop threatened to make a last-inning comeback in the person of Danny Brown, who was performing live. As you may have heard, that plan imploded in the worst way–Okayplayer TV was there, and the implosion also provided the most appropriate ending to this webisode we could have asked for. Grab your gallery guide and your bird-watching binoculars and let’s go: In Search of Hip-hop at… Art Basel. Press play to watch below:
