Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
Back in the lab again, putting together another list of stories that’s perfect for forwarding to that friend or colleague who has no clue about hip-hop culture, except stereotypical perceptions.
You should definitely tell them to sign up to hear acclaimed hip-hop scholars, authors, artists and thought-leaders join me to talk about hip-hop culture every week on my new podcast, Hip-Hop Can Save America. We start in May, and I’m pretty sure you’ll dig it, so stay tuned. 
I’m also finalizing a couple of speaking appearances, including this year’s big #HipHopHacks event at Spotify in NYC. If you are looking for someone to 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, on to the stories!
