Lush One Interview

MC/battle rap pioneer Lush One chops it up with Rhythmic Mind Co-Founder Max Kline about how Hip Hop helped him to form a strong identity from a young age, and not only gave him a lot of self-confidence and a sense of belonging, but also a way to authentically build community with others using Hip Hop as a universal language to bridge worlds and connect across all racial, cultural, and socioeconomic boundaries/backgrounds. He discusses all the positive/therapeutic aspects of battle rap, as well as his journey to sobriety and how it’s affected his self-perception and creativity/way of being in the world. All of this through the lens of the transformative and healing power of Hip Hop and how it’s been so instrumental in shaping his life on every level.
