Having been to a number of minority language conferences, I have come to recognise that rap music is the de facto standard for judging whether a minority language is being embraced by the youth (why?!). I am therefore pleased to commend to you The Chiel Meister on YouTube, demonstrating that Scots is alive and kicking.

Warning, caused several LOL moments – always embarrassing in a shared office environment.
