Hey everyone! After a bit of a top-of-the-year hiatus, we’re back! On the horizon, the Center is working on our next Hip-Hop Community Solution Cipher (early March, in NYC) and for me, between our News Beat podcast being chosen as a New York Times Podcast Club pick of the week, finishing up and shopping a book proposal (literary agent anyone?) and celebrating a birthday, it’s been a solid January.
So now, back to our weekly schedule sharing stories of hip-hop innovation, inspiration and insight with 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!
