Al Jazeera English – Asia-Pacific – Holy hip hop

Kansho Tagai, a Buddhist monk known as MC Happiness, believes in keeping the appeal of his religion fresh.

He regularly holds music sessions at a 400-year old temple in central Tokyo to teach Buddhist principles and rituals through hip hop.

Tagai’s status as Japan’s premier rapper monk has turned him into a local icon with a loyal fan base of followers and performance artists.
