Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
Happy to share with you another week’s worth of stories that shine light on all the aspects of hip-hop we don’t hear much about from our more … commercial-minded entities.
Long one this week, lots of amazing stuff going on. A lot of hip-hop theater, #hiphoped, hip-hop business and some intersection with politics and the criminal justice system this week, plus, the passing of an acclaimed hip-hop photographer and a record store pioneer.
If you like this newsletter, you’ll love the new podcast I’m launching, which looks at “non-traditional” ways that hip-hop music and culture are used to enhance society. Working out possible partnerships/sponsors and such now, but looks like a May 1 launch. Reply to this newsletter if you want to know more!
In the meantime, I’m always down 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!

BREAKIN’ NEWS
Hip-hop meets social justice journalism in the hard-hitting, head-nodding podcast, News Beat. In this episode: With Obama’s “War on Whistleblowers,” Trump unflinchingly attacking the media, daily, and even reporters being arrested… Exactly how “free” is the free press? 
A podcast episode every journalist (and citizen) must hear.
