Hey everyone! Got a new batch of interesting hip-hop related stories for you. I’d first just like to just thank the good folks at Bucknell University for inviting me to moderate a panel discussion and give a talk to students. First hip-hop event ever at their beautiful Weis Center for the Performing Arts, so we made history! Shouts to my new talented friends Mansa K, JPope, Amos Lachman, Miss Amarachi and Caleb Krohn!
NYC: Don’t forget to RSVP and come share your thoughts with other like-minded folks at our Dec. 7 Hip-Hop Community Solution Cipher! We’ll be there along with #HipHopHacks and the good folks at the Media Arts department at LIU - Brooklyn. Information below, this event is open to the public and free with RSVP
OK. Enough about me. RSVP for our event, and then check out this week’s batch of stories of hip-hop innovation, inspiration and insight.
