One flew over a ghetto's nest

By Daniel D. Zarazua A Spring 2007 interview from France's Hell's Kitchen magazine. There are some stories tied to the techno group Underground Resistance, as well as some thoughts on the Bay Area's hyphy movement. The writer, Fabrice, and I spoke for hours over some good Indian food and he pulled some thoughts from this conversation. Some things were lost in translation (try explaing sideshows in French), but one thing I love about having my own website is I can clarify somethings. Thanks to Marie for helping me translate. This isn't an exact translation, but I tried to word it to make sense and flow smoother in English. The original French version is at the Hell's Kitchen link above. My comments follow this version. Thanks again to Fabrice for hooking this up! Read article
