Detroit has a wild hip hop scene. Last fall, Noisey, which is the music element of VICE media’s seemingly endless story telling machine, was here in Detroit filming local hip hop artists, and showcasing the crazy landscape in which they operate. One of the main reasons Noisey found their way to Detroit was local artist Dex Osama. The young rapper found himself leading the pack of local talent, but right before the filming, he was gunned down outside of the Crazy Horse strip club, on Detroit’s west side. This video shows the beauty, the tragedy, and the reality of Detroit street music.
