'I always wanted to let everybody know hip-hop is worldwide,' says Korean hitmaker San E.
Last week, Billboard announced 14 international rapper's ambitious plan to release a charity single together. Throwing away the barriers of race, culture, language and sex, the collective known as Hip Hop for the World recorded a global anthem, "#HIPHOPISHIPHOP."
"'#HIPHOPISHIPHOP' is my high school dream," he tells Billboard. "As an immigrant, if I let my friends listen to Korean hip-hop music, they'd be like, 'They can rap in Korean?' I always wanted to let everybody know hip-hop is worldwide; it can be rap in all different languages you never heard. It took awhile to make it really happen, now here it is."
