For those of you who haven’t seen “Akira’s Hip Hop Shop”, it is a love story of a Japanese man and African-American woman that bond over their mutual love of hip hop music. This film was written and directed by James Doughrity (and reportedly co-written and produced by a black woman). I wonder if its from personal experience? Oh, those make the best kinds of stories. You can watch Akira’s Hip Hop Shop online here. Enjoy!
