Microkhan by Brendan I. Koerner

Representing the +95

May 5th, 2010 · No Comments

The sitter’s deathly ill and the Grand Empress is at JFK picking up a shipment of lacey undergarments (slightly NSFW), so Microkhan Jr. is our sole responsibility ’til his afternoon playdate. That means no time for words o’ wisdom this morning, an announcement we make with heavy hearts. Hope to get back to y’all once the progeny is off our hands; in the meantime, check out the video above from Sai Sai, the most famous rapper in all of MyanmarBurma. (Rational for our word choice to be found here.) Apparently the children of the nation’s power elite enjoy hip-hop with a K-pop twist. Sai Sai himself comes from such a privileged background; his grandfather was reportedly a Shan nobleman who helped found modern Burma. As such, the 31-year-old rapper is reluctant to rock the boat in advance of the country’s upcoming elections—er, “elections.” Though given the conditions in Burmese prisons, we can’t necessarily say we’d make a more courageous choice.
