The World Is Yours: The Importance of Hip Hop Culture | Joshua Rowsey | TEDxCaryAcademy

His mission within hip hop has become clear: To cultivate a thriving hip-hop culture in North Carolina.

Joshua “Rowdy” Rowsey (Class of 2009) is an underground North Carolina recording artist, actor/improviser, and writer featured on NPR, DJ Booth, Indy Week, and various national publications–most recently performing at the Del Close Marathon alongside improvisers such as Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation). Rowdy is a founding member of the national hip hop collective No9to5 Music. He initiated the UNC-Chapel Hill cypher, which was nominated for an Indy Week award for best place to listen to Hip Hop in the Triangle.
