The New York Times: "Meta-Rap"
Check out this article by my man Jon Caramanica on what he has dubbed "meta-rap", more commonly and somewhat derogatorily referred to as "hipster rap". I don't know what to call it personally, and each of the artists mentioned in the article are somewhat unique to me, but there is some sort of intangible that links them together. It sure is nice to see the newest movement in hip-hop covered by the pinnacle of daily literati in any case. Go, Jon!
Be on the look out for The Knux new video for "Bang! Bang!" directed by Justin Francis very, very soon.
