With over 33 years devoted to spreading the positive attributes of hip hip culture, to say that Mode 2 is a wealth of knowledge is an understatement. He is artist, scholar, and Hip Hop activist, and this is what he has to say about why Hip Hop has has such a universal appeal.
“Hip Hop attracts youngsters that would kind of go to certain extremes and could sometimes maybe end up on the wrong side of the tracks. Through this, they had competitive, expressive language by which they could measure themselves against their peers. Like on that level it was very very enriching and it’s also very community oriented that way. It’s down to how good you are , but you are still part of something and you share with others.”
