Meet the two rappers planning to shoot a video in North Korea

"Citizen diplomat" helping young rappers to shoot music video in North Korea

Pacman and Peso, two rappers hailing from South East Washington, D.C. and Maryland, had never heard of North Korea until their manager, Ramsey Aburdene, suggested it as a location for a music video. But now they have high hopes of visiting the country, having launched a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $6000 by September 29 to get them there.

The aspiring rappers, who are described as "two gifted young artists who are fighting to improve their lives and rise above difficult circumstances," grew up in tough neighborhoods and have had difficult upbringings.
