They had workshops with current Leeds University students on Immigration, racism and multiculturalism and then met and spoke with (in Spanish of course) the famous Spanish rapper El Chojin.
El Chojín is one of the most successful rap musicians in the Spanish-speaking world. Over the course of twenty years, he has released over 15 albums and mix tapes, and performed in Spain, across Latin America, in Equatorial Guinea, and in the UK. He is the author of several books and presenter of a weekly TV programme on hip-hop and urban culture in Spain that is now in its fifth season on Televisión Española. El Chojín is admired particularly on account of his use of rap to raise awareness of and denounce issues such as racism, political corruption, gender violence, and school bullying. He is the current Guinness World Record holder for most syllables rapped in one minute!!
