The impact of UNC-Chapel Hill’s hip-hop curriculum is now global. From last year’s launch of the U.S. Department of State-sponsored “international exchange program” Next Level to campus itself, where the budding crew No9to5 Music coordinates weekly cyphers, the place has become a beat exporter. The tradition began in the late ’90s when then-budding Chapel Hill emcee Kaze started an on-campus organization called Hip Hop Nation. You’re now more likely to catch Kaze on the tube in his new gig as entertainment contributor for WNCN than you are to see him high-stepping in the rap race. But this benefit for the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center should supply fun and spectacle as two generations share the microphone for one worthy cause. —Eric Tullis
