Spent Saturday DJing a great monthly NYC artist showcase and jam, The Line Up with Silent Knight and The Band Called FUSE. Seven years and running, the first Saturday of every month at Sidewalk NYC, down in the LES. I just love the diverse, music loving crowd that always comes out, with all kinds of genres of music represented. It’s a perfect example of hip-hop bringing people together in a beautiful, positive way.

Speaking of Silent Knight, the newest episode of News Beat is out, and he is featured. News Beat is an incredible (I promise) podcast that I produce along with exceptional journalists, that combines investigative journalism and music, with a splash of hip-hop! The episode is linked below, and you can (and should!) listen and subscribe at or search “News Beat podcast” wherever you get your favorite podcasts.
Lastly, there’s a SPECIAL event we’re holding in NYC. Info at the bottom.
Enough about me. Kindly spend some of your extra hour today checking out these stories of hip-hop-related innovation, inspiration and insight.
