for those who don't know, the rafu shimpo is the main japanese american newspaper here in LA. getting ink in the rafu is huge for me personally because i know my grandma and bachan are gonna see it! i don't know if they really understand what i do, but if my name's in the rafu it's all gravy to them.
"I think it's important to know that there have been successful artists and musicians in our community who have come before. My parallel with what Chris was doing back then is my relationship to hip-hop now."
large up to jordan ikeda from the rafu for the interview and doing a great job of connecting the film with the musicians who are gonna perform at the premiere.
