Title: 'Live it and Spit it': Hip Hop and the Globalized Muslim Youth of the Asia Pacific

This talk will explore the appropriation of hip hop music by young Muslims in the Asia Pacific. The genre which initially comes as a challenge to religious authorities and the state has developed from a stigmatized art form to one that has been co-opted by grassroots organizations and government ministries. The presentation will delve into the different strategies adopted by hip hoppers to not only reconcile their multiple identities but also to ensure the advancement of their craft.
