The Hip-Hop Advocate Newsletter
Hello friends, neighbors, supporters and haters! A bit of a bittersweet start to this newsletter, as we lead with two major pieces. First, a heartbreaking tribute to the late Combat Jack, and second, an incredibly important legal victory for the artists of 5 Pointz.
Special thanks to all of you who reply and let me know you’re enjoying this newsletter. Your appreciation is appreciated!

NYC: We’re still working on setting up the next Hip-Hop Community Solution Cipher. I’ll send out an update as soon as we have it locked down.

OK, that’s it for now. On to the stories.
