[News] Do you have to be an American to rap?

A new documentary coming out poses this question. When Scottish rappers Billy Boyd and Gavin Bain (Silibil n Brains) got signed to Sony, they underwent a huge change; they became west-coast rappers. It comes as no surprise that image is important, but director Jeanie Finlay dives into the problem to see just how large it is. Check out the trailer for her documentary “The Great Hip Hop Hoax” after the jump.
