Bongo Barbershop (Charlie Ahearn | Bronx, NY | 8 min.)
An East African MC, Balozi Dola, wanders into a Bronx barbershop on his pilgrimage to find "the real hip-hop." The barber, Flash's original partner DJ Easy Mike, calls out Grand Master Caz, who spits a rhyme on how we are in the place of hip-hop's origins. Shop sweeper DOA adds vocal percussion to the mix and Balozi Dola rhymes back in his native African Swahili. "Bongo" is the Swahili expression for "brain" used in local hip-hop slang. Brought to you by the director of the hip-hop classic "Wild Style."
