Aspiring US rappers say they filmed music video in North Korea
AP: Two US rappers, Pacman and Peso, said Saturday they filmed part of a music video in North Korea.
The rappers spoke to media in Beijing upon their arrival back from North Korea.
"I mean we did not go there to be political. We just go down there to shoot our video and that about the reason why we went, not political," said Pacman.
The two funded their trip using Kickstarter.

Here’s a backstory on the rappers, who are D.C.-based and received much of the funding for their music video from a wealthy entrepreneur.
