From North Korea, US Rappers to American: Don't Believe What You Hear, See For Yourself

US Rappers in North Korea to Americans: Don't Believe in What You Hear, See For Yourself
US rappers North Korea music video is online hit
(Telegraph) Two US rappers have filmed a music video in North Korea titled 'Escape to North Korea' which has quickly gone viral


Pacman and Peso posted "Escape to North Korea" on their YouTube site on the eve of the 31st birthday of the communist state's supreme leader Kim Jong-un.
"We shot a great music video and did something nobody has done so I feel great about it," said Pacman through his manager.
Following in the footsteps of basketball star Dennis Rodman, who was in Pyongyang this week, Anthony Bobb (Pacman) and Dontray Ennis (Peso) travelled halfway around the world in November to shoot their video on the streets of the North Korea capital.
By doing so, with financial help from Kickstarter contributors and a New York hedge fund manager, the dreadlocked rappers hoped to set themselves apart in Washington's homegrown hip hop scene.
The video has been watched over 130,000 times since being uploaded earlier this week.
US rappers who filmed a video in Pyongyang say North Koreans should not be seen as "bad" just because of their leader's actions.

Rapper Dontray Ennis, AKA 'Peso', and Rapper Anthony Bobb, AKA 'Pacman', say North Korea is safer than Washington DC.
