VIDEO: JUMP OFF UK DEBATE – WHAT IS “URBAN” MUSIC

With the word “Urban” in the air the debaters discuss exactly what the word means. Here are some of the questions that were raised and discussed during the debate: Is “Urban” Music Black Music?

What was the brief from the director/producer – ‘We want to cause a stir, so say some controversial s**t, because we desperately want this documentary to be a talking point within the community’.
