Advertiser Staff and News Services
Local vs. hip-hop — nevah da twain going meet? Wrong, brother ... er, should we say, bruddah? You'll find multiple intersections of the two cultures in "Hip-Hop Hawai'i," a free, 31-page student journal by Kapi'olani Community College students Ryan Okuno and Lisa Mizuire, co-edited by Lee Tonouchi.
See the Hawaiian version of bling, read the story of a member of the Town Swat Team b-boys and check out the tagging photos in this booklet, which won a special merit prize in the 2005 American Scholastic Press Association's annual contest. Pick up copies and get them signed 10 a.m. Tuesday in KCC's Lama Library front lobby; 366-1272.
