The Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate – these iconic landmarks aren’t the only places to get your historical fix in Berlin.

Hipco is a hip-hop distinctive to Liberia which is sung in Liberian-English exclusively. Mr. Smith Lib Money International is one of the numerous MC of the Liberian Hipco scene.
