If I showed my mom a picture of Kanye and said "who's this?" she'd either say Kanye West, or Kim K's husband. She prob wouldn't be able to name a song. But she's know who he IS.
If I showed my mom a pic of MF Doom in his mask, she'd prob guess he was from The Avengers movies or something.
Your mom would probably be able to name a song. My mom can. Being an aging liberal academic, she at least hears *about* things like the “Diamonds from SL” remix tackling the diamond trade, or “Blood on the Leaves” audaciously using “Strange Fruit” as a sample.
Also, one year I sent her “Hey Mama” as part of a Mother’s Day gift. Lol.
