Over the last few years, we've almost seen the HipHop culture slowing down (or maybe evolving) in North America. But all the while, HipHop has been growing like wildfire all over India. HipHop is a platform of expression and there are over 200M youth with increasing purchasing power ready to express themselves about social & political issues... which will in turn expand the current $80B market.
