Hello friends, neighbors, supporters and haters! A lot of interesting stories in this week’s roundup of hip-hop innovation, inspiration and insight
Now, one of the best belated birthday presents you can give me is to forward this to someone you think might enjoy it – a fellow lover of hip-hop music and culture! 
Also, feel free to forward to someone who DOESN’T really know or care much about hip-hop music and culture. The real goal here is to show people that hip-hop is so much more than rap music on the radio!
Special thanks to all of you who reply and let me know you’re enjoying this newsletter. Your appreciation is appreciated!
Still working on setting up the next Hip-Hop Community Solution Cipher in NYC. I’ll send out an update as soon as we have it locked down.
Lastly, I am available to speak about hip-hop music, culture or journalism at your school, conference or festival. I have a few different themed talks and am lining up bookings through June 2018 right now!
OK, that’s it for now. On to the stories. 
Oh. Peace to Ron G, Brucie B, Kid Capri.. Funkmaster Flex, Lovebug Starski
