Peace and love to friends, neighbors, supporters and haters!
First off - If you haven’t checked out my new podcast, Hip-Hop Can Save America, please do! I’m certain that if you’ve been enjoying this newsletter, you will love this podcast. A new episode airs TONIGHT at 10pm on BondfireRadio.com or on Bondfire Radio’s channel on the TuneIn app, and past episodes can be found at www.hiphopcansaveamerica.com or subscribe now on your favorite podcast app [Apple Podcasts / Stitcher / Other podcast app]
Also, the award-winning News Beat podcast I produce, which mixes hard-hitting social justice journalism with hip-hop music and original lyrics, dropped another amazing episode recently. Link is below.  
Still pretty excited that a hip-hop-based journalism podcast won Best Podcast at the New York Press Club Journalism Awards. Big for me/us, but HUGE for hip-hop!
Ok, enough humblebragging. On to some interesting hip-hop stories from the past couple of weeks.
