Condescending dude approaches a random young fella at an Obama rally. He fires off a few baiting questions, which he’s certain will expose him as the uninformed, emotionally-driven, ignorant young voter he assumes he is. Condescending dude gets owned.
Come to find out the young man’s name is Derrick Ashong (his story) – a socially conscious hiphop artist that goes by the name DNA. He’s an immigrant from Ghana, West Africa. He’s part of a trio of artists that goes by the name Soulfège. They’ve started something called Take Back the Mic, which is “a movement to put meaning back into today’s music and to challenge a new generation of youth to speak for themselves.”
Oh, and he’s also a Harvard alumn.
