Worldwide Hip Hop

Here's an interesting Slate article about the current state of hip hop in Israel and Palestine. I'm interested in watching Sling Shot Hip Hop, but interestingly enough, I can't find it on Netflix or IMDB. As an aside, Jackie Salloum, the filmmaker, served as the cinematographer on Michael Franti's new documentary about Iraq, titled I Know I'm Not Alone.
Another interesting article about international hip hop appeared in Time Magazine's coverage of the riots in France last year. Medine, a French Islamic rapper, wrote an article about disillusionment amongst Islamic youth in France.
