The other day, as part of Triple J’s live comedy debate show Debate Night, comedians Nazeem Hussain and Rose Callaghan came against each other to argue whether Australian hip-hop is better than US hip-hop. The recording is below, skip to 50:30.
There’s not much to say here that hasn’t already been said by the greater hip-hop community. Plus it’s pretty self-explanatory if you listen. I’m not going to point fingers at Hussain, Callaghan, Ballard or Triple J. The only comment I’ll make is: it’s no wonder ignorance like this surrounds our culture.
