Homework

Read Wayne's piece on hip-hop's "Jamaican accent" and his notes on the antipathy he encountered to his observations. Now for extra, extra credit, relate this to the "where you're from"/"where you're at" dialectic (I use that word pointedly) as discussed by Simon and Michelangelo with ref. to (warning, warning) M.I.A.

Once I've carried out that assignment my own self, we'll get back with some notes.
