Get Rhythm

There is a clear and culturally fascinating umbilical cord linking old blues & outlaw country to gangsta rap: it's something I talk about in the book quite a bit. But it doesn't just mean you can hire a DJ to come in and put some beats behind Folsom Prison Blues and expect the results to be instantly wonderful. It takes a little more sensitivity and knowledge than that.

I'm blogging about the perils of the casual genre clash here.
