Farma Hits It On The Head

This exact same sentiment has crossed my mind more than a couple of times:

"Hip hop as a worldwide sub-culture is one of the most contrived and hypocritical in existence. Why do i say this you may ask..well, To me it represents being a rebel, an outlaw, an under dog, a non conformist etc, but in essence it has more rules and regulations than any other group of people i can think of."

This Diggaz Love interview with Farma Giles is a must read, and probably one of the most insightful you'll find from an artist who is, or has been, part of this scene.
