Kun, “What is an MC If He Can’t Rap to Banda?” Akwid, “No Hay Manera” Why does Kun call this a “radical song” (742)? “Akwid’s music…performs an ethnic identity that is indeed based on a daily experience in the US, but one that remains influenced by and informed by a new set of customs produced within US-Mexico migrations-- customs based not only on life in Mexico, but on life between Mexico and the US….A kind of becoming Mexican in America (744).”
