Hello friends, neighbors, supporters and haters! Cool collection of stories this week, as hip-hop continues to innovate and inspire across so many different dimensions.
A couple of quick personal items:
  • Finally saw Black Panther. Wow.
  • I have signed with a literary agent. Yay.
  • I’m DJing at The Line Up, a monthly artist showcase and open jam. NYC, this Saturday. Always a great time. Never a cover!
Oh, and we’re launching a new podcast! Trust me, if you’re on this list, you’re going to dig it. I’ll let you know more about it soon. 
In the meantime, I’d love to come speak about hip-hop music and culture, journalism, or podcasting at your school, conference, or festival. I have a few different themed talks and am lining up bookings right now!
Ok, on to the stories! (Oh, and if you were forwarded this, feel free to sign up directly so you don’t miss anything in the future!)
