Via NPR: “Gomo Tulku, the Rapping Lama”

“[T]here’s been a detour in Gomo Tulku’s spiritual journey,” reports NPR. “He’s about to release his first rap recording.”

Now, comments on the piece, so far, don’t seem to be in the Rapping Lama’s favor. But listen for yourself and see what you think.

Of course, there’s nothing new about the Buddhism/hip-hop crossover. And like anything, the results have been all over the map. You’ll find some gems — and otherwise — in the Horse’s archives.

Thanks to Colleen Ann K. for the tip.

    Well, maybe I’m biased as I’ve been in favor of Gomo Tulku since 1985 !
    Best wishes for the success of his single Photograph, released tomorrow …
