Hip Hop Spa

This song Hip Hop Spa is by Fatima Al Qadiri off her new album Genre-Specific Xperience. The video is by Kamau Patton.

Hip Hop Spa posits an uncanny parallel between the luxurious solitary confinement of a spa experience and the introspective image of prison solitary confinement often presented in contemporary, genre specific, Hip Hop cultural product. Solitary subconscious is the experience of virtual age Hip Hop culture. The track expands the lexicon of the genre, while questioning the general public's consumption of rap and hip hop aesthetics.
