dbo:abstract
  • Blue Scholars is an American hip hop duo based in Seattle, Washington, created in 2002 while the members, DJ Sabzi (Saba Mohajerjasbi) and MC Geologic (George Quibuyen), were students at University of Washington. The name "Blue Scholars" is a play on the term "blue collar," an idiom for workers who often earn hourly wages for manual labor. Their music and lyrics frequently focus on struggles between socioeconomic classes, challenging authority and youth empowerment. These themes are often specifically addressed in relation to the Seattle region ("Southside Revival", "North by Northwest", "50 Thousand Deep", "Joe Metro", "Slick Watts" and "The Ave"), and heavily draw upon Geologic's history as an activist within the Filipino American community dealing with issues of immigration, racism, and U.S. neo-imperialism in the Philippines. Recent music has begun to extend even further outward, reflecting the group's greater West Coast and Pacific roots including an album devoted to exploring Geo's Hawaiian heritage on the OOF! EP. (en)
  • Blue Scholars est un groupe de hip-hop américain, originaire de Seattle, Washington. Le nom du groupe est un jeu de mot avec le terme blue collar (en français « col bleu ») qui est une manière d'appeler les employés qui font un travail manuel. Leur musique et paroles sont centrées sur la lutte des classes, la critique des autorités et la prise de pouvoir des jeunes, comme le montrent les chansons Opening Salvo, Blink et Commencement Day. Ces thèmes sont parfois en rapport avec la région de Seattle, comme dans Southside Revival, North by Northwest ou The Ave. (fr)
