To emphasize how widespread an influence hip-hop is, Buddhist monks in Japan at one point were actually singing chants like raps and opening up drink bars to attain a larger following. I’m not a monk, but I used to be a bartender here in the U.S. So, when it comes to the subject of alcohol I’m somewhat of a rule pusher.
