The Hip-Hop Advocate Newsletter
Hello again friends, neighbors, supporters, and haters:
Got a new batch of stories oozing with hip-hop-flavored innovation and insight for you. Couple quick things first:
Hip-Hop Can Save America! (aka The World’s Smartest Podcast) has NEW EPISODES! One is about hip-hop being used to help teach young people computer coding, the other is about the movement to make sure hip-hop music is taught as music.
Trust me, if you’re getting this newsletter, this podcast is right up your alley. If you haven’t subscribed, this would be a great use of your extra hour, just saying…
