SupaMan: Rapping On The Rez

SupaMan is an Apsáalooke American Indian rapper from the Crow Nation Reservation near Billings, Montana. Here he performs his song 'Prayer Loop Song':

"Native Americans grasp that culture of hip-hop because of the struggle," says SupaMan. "Hip-hop was talking about the ghetto life, poverty, crime, drugs, alcohol, teen pregnancy; all that crazy stuff that happens in the ghetto is similar to the reservation life. We can relate to that."
