Hime (?) - Ukina [PV]

There's a subgroup of younger people in Japan who have adopted rap and hip hop personas to their identity. Hime is an interesting example, though she doesn't seem to have gone as far as some in adopting hip hop culture. There are some kids, mostly girls, who tan and tan until they look as dark as possible and call themselves kokujin, black people. There's a character in my second novel that is one of them. I can see her very easily attending one of Hime's concerts.

I actually can understand her rap better than a lot of male rappers for some reason.
