Hip-Hop was introduced to Zinj El-Barr at a young age:
“I was 10 years old when I started listening to [rap].  Wyclef [Jean]’s [The Carnival] LP.  My cousin who used to  DJ, had crates full of records.  Hearing  Lauryn Hill on ‘Year of the Dragon’ had me going crazy back then, but I didn’t pay it any attention until years later…”
