Hello friends, neighbors, supporters and haters… 
Starting this one off on a somber note. AD The General, an NYC-based event producer who ran artist showcases for many years in the city and around the country, passed away Friday. I knew AD for a long time. She was one of the original contributors to Birthplace Magazine, the online publication I launched back in 2008, and we had crossed paths many times since, always with mutual appreciation and respect. Sincere condolences to her friends, colleagues and family. #SaluteTheGeneral
As I mentioned last week, I am launching a new podcast which looks at “non-traditional” ways that hip-hop music and culture are used to enhance society – basically, speaking to the kinds of folks behind the type of stuff you’ll see in this newsletter. Looks like an early April launch. Stay tuned, and if you would like to speak about sponsoring the show, reach out!
That’s one of the things I lecture about, by the way. I’d love to come speak about hip-hop music and culture, journalism, or podcasting at your school, conference, or festival. Click here and let’s talk about talking!
OK. Here we go. Remember, if you were forwarded this, feel free to sign up directly so you don’t miss anything in the future!
