Boston Band Crush Archived Article: Magical Hip-Hop Crush: Wiz Rock iz Dead

This article originally appears on Boston Band Crush ). Well, friends, the Harry Potter book series has come to a conclusion and the film adaptations are wrapping up soon enough.

Emerging from the ashes is the post-wrock (that’s Wizard Rock) genre of Whip-Whop (okay, I made that one up), Wizard Hip-Hop – yes, that’s Harry-Potter-themed hip-hop.
