"Hip-hop has breakdancing, we have shake-a-leg," says Rival MC from Aboriginal hip-hop group Impossible Odds. "Hip-hop has a deejay, we've got a didge player; hip-hop has an emcee, we've got a songman; hip-hop has graffiti, we've got the oldest graffiti in the whole world with our artwork. So it's only natural that we just pick hip-hop up, gel with it, and be able to use it as a tool to voice our opinions today." Unlike many rappers, Indigenous emcees also use hip-hop as it was originally intended - as a tool against black oppression.
