Celebrities Serj Tankian and Kim Kardashian (who both grew up in Los Angeles) have each made a powerful impact on their respective fields of alternative music and reality television, introducing disparate and unique takes on Armenian identity into American pop culture. And now, with lyrical prowess and melodious flow, Los Angeles-born, overtly-Armenian rapper R-Mean is bringing word of his mountainous ancestral republic to one of our biggest cultural expressions of all: hip-hop. In Early 2013, R-

It was the new start D-Sisive's story needed. And he hasn't stopped since. 2008's The Book EP was nominated for a Juno and its single "Nobody With A Notepad" won the SOCAN ECHO So
