NW MINN-HOP: 'Straight Outta Fosston'
Published 05/30/2009, Grand Forks Herald
When Joe Hanson moved to Chicago after graduating from Fosston (Minn.) High School in 2001, he was surprised by how big-city folks were fascinated by small-town life. This month, he put his perspective on his hometown in a rap song titled “Straight Outta Fosston.” It’s been a hit with northwestern Minnesotans in the week the song, accompanied by photographs of the town, has been available on the Internet. In a few days, it gathered more than 2,000 visitors.Word count: 611
