Keaton hopes to harness hip-hop's potential

Despite the global popularity of hip-hop culture, Kingston's many hip-hop artists remain overlooked and, arguably, under-appreciated. For over a decade, Keaton Ryan has been working to elevate Kingston's hip-hop talent both here at home and abroad. Following the release of his new full-length album, If Strangers Think I'm Cool, Keaton sits with hosts Riley and Pete to discuss the challenges facing Kingston's hip-hop scene, and how to unlock its potential for the benefit of everyone.
