Dear friends, neighbors, supporters and haters! 
Sorry a little late this week. Two quick things, and then the stories.
ONE, please listen to the News Beat podcast episode highlighted below. I’m biased because I help create them, but you NEED this incredible new way of shining light on injustices and untruths, using investigative journalism, music and HIP-HOP in your life!
TWO: NYC! Our first Hip-Hop Community Solution Cipher, a public meeting of the hip-hop-minded going down THIS THURSDAY, Dec. 7 at LIU - Brooklyn. Join us along with the #HipHopHacks organization to discuss hip-hop’s role in improving lives and communities! Information below, this event is open to the public and free with RSVP
As always, thank you for allowing me into your inbox to deliver these stories of hip-hop innovation, inspiration and insight to you. Feel free to forward to your friends, encourage them to subscribe and, if you feel inclined, reply and let us know how we’re doing!
