Stumbled across an excellent short piece written by Rafi Kam. In it he discusses an interview with Dj Chela that made the blog rounds a few weeks ago. The interview was linked by many sites, possibly as a starting point for a discussion but probably just because it appeared to be thoughtful (or was at least thought provoking). Anyway, Rafi does an excellent job at pointing out something that a lot of marketing professors will gladly throw in your face, sex sells. And it doesn’t just sell music, it sells almost everything. What was more interesting to me however was another point Rafi comments on, the idea that there is a strong demand for discussion of complex issues in the hip-hop community. Link
