Article on Bigg in the Moroccan press

Don Bigg Works the Room (February 2009 article on Moroccan rapper Don Bigg — published at Afopop.org)  – I interviewed Don Bigg in 2008 in Casablanca and he told me about his work and gave me a primer in Moroccan rap styles. Steeped in the history of hip-hop, Don creates music that is firmly rooted in Morocco without using Moroccan musical material (an approach that hasn’t worked for many others) and is one of the most significant voices as Moroccan hip-hop comes of age.
